Genmai is also called brown rice. Genmai tea is made with green tea leaves and fried brown rice. This tea product exhibits a clear robust green colour, is highly aromatic and does not hurt the digestive system.
One of the key ingredients in Genmai tea is brown rice, which is soaked, steamed and then stir-fried. The last process is critical and must be done patiently. If the brown rice is not stir-fried enough, rice aroma is not fully released. If the process is overdone, rice grains become carbonized to release a burnt smell, ruining the taste and colour of the tea. Hence, the stir-frying process must be done just right.
‘Montea’ selects all ingredients directly from tea and green food bases, with the aim of getting raw materials that comply fully with international standards for pesticide residues to make the best tea.
