Alien Leaf : Genmai' Chai
Alien Leaf : Genmai' Chai
"Genmai'Chai" - an unusually delicious union between the traditional beverage originating from India, Masala Chai, using green instead of black tea by way of the deliciously toasted & nutty Japanese green tea with brown rice kernels, Genmaicha. The lovely vegetal green flavor, indicative of Japan's steaming process, is balanced by the nutty flavor imparted by the roasted rice. All of which is then enveloped in the warmth of oat & coconut milk powders with the energizing Indian spices & aromatics of a traditional masala chai.

Best Results: Using a fine mesh tea strainer (or tea ball, tea infusion tool, etc) - steep 2-3 grams of loose tea in 8 oz of hot water for 7-8 minutes. Can be steeped for longer but try not to exceed 10 min to preserve Genmaicha's smooth flavor. *Optional, but suggested: Add a tbsp or 2 of your favorite milk (Vanilla almond milk is Alien's choice =] )*. Stir tea thoroughly and drink.
