 Genmai-cha: a blend of traditional Green Tea and Roasted Brown Rice.
 2 T. rice
 4 c. water
 Green Tea
 Put the rice in a small, cast-iron skillet and set over a med-low
 flame. Stir the grains until they turn dark in spots and give out
 a nice roasted aroma.  Put the rice kernels into a small pot.
 Add 4 cups boiling water. Simmer for 1 minute.  Cover, and
 turn off the heat.  Let the "Rice Tea" steep for 3 minutes.
 Now add some dry Green Tea (enough to make 4 c.) to the "Rice Tea".  
 Cover, and let steep another 3 minutes.  Strain and serve.  
 NOTES:  The Rice Tea is nice by itself and the Genmai-cha makes a great 
 ice tea.
