Travelers’ Treasures / Yuuki Genmai Baisencha (Roasted brown rice tea)

This organic brown rice tea is a baisen-cha (roasted tea) created from brown rice without the use of additives.

Rich in vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, brown rice has attracted attention as a health food not just in Japan but all over the world. Rice-based infusions have long been drunk as part of Oriental herbal medicine, providing a readily-absorbed source of nutrients such as iron, polyphenol and various vitamins.

Of these, phytic acid in particular is known to be effective for removing unwanted toxins from the body; along with the fiber that is found in abundance in brown rice, this compound is recognized to have excellent detoxing effects.

As this roasted brown rice tea makes no use of additives and, unlike regular tea and coffee, is completely caffeine-free, it can be served with perfect confidence to everyone from small children to elderly people.

Reducing the volume of hot water added brings out the coffee-like roasted barley flavors of the infusion, meaning that a whole range of different tastes can be enjoyed from the same product.
