Matcha is a much beloved green tea in Japan, yet it can seem intense to the uninitiated westerner. As an alternative, we suggest Matcha iri Genmaicha, the best of both worlds. The Bancha ("cha") leaves and brown rice ("genmai") that comprise Genmaicha are coated with Matcha green tea powder, and the result is fantastic!
Please brew it for 3 minutes with 175º water. The cooler water makes sure matcha does not get too strong, yet you need 3 minutes to get the nutty flavor from the genmai (brown rice).
