Warmth for the Inside

As the weather gets colder, it's time to move to hot beverages. I feel like a cup, no, make that a mug, of tea. After posting this blog, I'm going downstairs to boil some water for a mug of Genmaicha (Brown Rice Green Tea) :)

My Genmaicha are tea bags from Ten Ren Tea. I'm lucky my local asian market carries them. Otherwise, I'm sure you can order it online. Ten Ren Tea makes it with Sencha Green Tea blended with roasted brown rice. It gives me almost the same taste I get from having toasted rice soup after all the rice is scraped out of the rice pot :)

You can make your own Genmaicha by toasting rice grains and adding it to your favorite green tea (1:1). If you are unsure as to how to toast rice, just use your favorite search engine. There are many recipes out there; even ones for making your own Genmaicha.

Try it! You may enjoy it! I do :)
