Genmai is brown rice in Japanese. J-OKINI’s organic Genmaicha is a blend of Sencha loose leaves, toasted brown rice and a bit of Ceremonial grade Matcha powder (first flush). The brown rice gives extra benefit by regulating blood pressure and controls cholesterol levels as well as enhancing calm and preventing obesity. This Sencha tea is Shincha (first flush tea leaves) for the bright green colour and fresh with Umami flavour and the brown rice gives nutty flavour.
This tea is popular among women because it helps with diet and also fights with ageing as well as many more nutrients one needs on daily basis, such as vitamin B1, B2, C, A, minerals and fibre.
In order to ingest 100% of nutrients like Matcha and Sencha powder, do not throw away the used tea leaves. You can eat it by adding to your rice, pasta, and salad or tomato sauce. Keep it in the fridge and use it within the day or next day.

J-okini is a distributor of Japanese organic green tea in Malta. I once took part in a giveaway organised by J-okini. Sumie, the founder of J-okini, informed me that I was one of the giveaway winners. She also mentioned that she is happy that I won as she loves my blog and that she is following my social media pages. Few weeks after I had a giveaway. Coincidentally, yes it was coincidentally as I use a random generator to pick out winner name, Sumie was the winner of that giveaway. We met so that I give her the prize and ended up talking long about social media, green teas, etc. Being new to green tea, I asked Sumie if she would like to write posts where she can give information about the different types of green tea and their benefits. The reason is that there are a lot of types. If I had to write a post, I would definitely mix up one type with the other. She agreed and here is part 4 of her post.
This is a sponsored post. You are not obligated to buy. However, if you decide to buy from J-okini, please leave a note in your order. Let Sumie know that you read her article on this website, she would love that.
