Tonight I decided to make up some Genaicha.
I dry roasted the rice, a few did pop like popcorn, and it was very quick and easy. The smell of the rice roasting was heavenly; after they cooled on a plate for a few minutes I eat a few, very tasty. Adding a teaspoon of a the rice to the infuser I poured boiling water over the rice and let the water cool for three minutes, added a bag of cheap green tea and let it steep for three more. I stored the rest of the rice in an airtight container for latter use.
This was my first time trying anything like Genmaicha and really love the roasted rice taste.
PS: I'd drink brown rice tea without the green tea added. Smooth.
