Three Teas Umami Seasoning

3 teas umami seasoning ingredients

I received a tea recipe booklet from Sugimoto Tea.

This seasoning recipe has three Japanese green teas in it: houjicha, sencha and genmaicha. That’s why I had to try it.

It’s meant to be used in savory dishes.

Here’s the recipe:

  • 1 tbsp loose leaf houjicha
  • 1 tbsp loose leaf sencha
  • 2.5 tbsp loose leaf genmaicha
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • 1.5 tsp garlic powder
grinding the seasoning

All you have to do is to mix the ingredients and then grind them into a powder with a spice grinder or a mortar and pestle.

I have a wooden mortar and pestle which I always use when grinding spices.

It only take some effort to obtain a fine powder this way.

The seasoning has a pleasant aroma. It made me feel hungry.

I also liked its color.

It has just the right amount of salt and spicy flavor.


So far I have tried it on rice, pasta and chicken.

I’ve enjoyed it a lot.
