The favorite hobby of the Culy editors is to wander around the Toko, looking for unknown products. The more mysterious, the better. And we always go for a nice packaging. Our Toko Finds inspired us to set up a new section. From now on we regularly share our favorite purchases from the Asian supermarket with you. This time: Genmai Cha.
Genmai Cha: tea with the taste of popcorn
This time no spicy sauce or funky bean paste, but tea that listens to the name Genmai Cha. So look for it at the rest of the tea in the toko. If you don’t recognize it by the cheerful orange suit, you will recognize it by the smell. Genmai Cha smells a bit like popcorn. And that’s how it tastes too!
That has everything to do with the fact that Genmai Cha is a combination of Japanese green tea and roasted rice. The latter creates an unmistakable popcorn aroma. And do you think that that green tea is not good? Then you should try it yourself. We think the two are a pretty logical marriage, making Genmai Cha an ideal alternative to your standard coffee or ginger tea.
Hot, cold or for cooking
The most logical choice is to drink Genmai Cha warm, although you can also make great iced tea out of it. And did you know that you can also use green tea very well as an ingredient in the kitchen? We can well imagine that Genmai is a very tasty marinade for salmon or other fish. Kind of like we did in this recipe for salmon with lapsang souchong tea , actually.
Also nice: use the tea as a base for the broth in your congee . Or simply cook white rice in it, so that it immediately becomes a lot more exciting. With some cubes of salmon, nori and pickled cucumber you can create a nice rice bowl in no time. Convinced? The message is to rush to the shop.
