Genmaicha

Genmaicha tea is a peasant's version of green tea. Basically, it's part green tea and part filler roasted rice. When you put roasted rice in hot water, the individual grains rehydrate and swell a bit.

If you leave the strainer full of rehydrated rice grains on the counter, and your mom happens to chance a look inside, she may assume your tea is full of maggots.

My mom doesn't really drink tea. If there were maggots in my tea, I probably wouldn't drink much, either.

Maggot tea. I am sure Klingons would drink it.
