Now, I’m no Genmaicha pro as this is the first Genmaicha I’ve tasted, but it’s so far a winner and I’ve had at least two cups a day since I bought it last week.
It has an incredibly savory flavor that goes well with dinner or lunch and reminds me of ochazuke. Unlike other green teas I’ve tried, it’s less grassy as the roasted rice really takes precedence in taste. It’s got a lovely smooth texture with a filling flavor. Even after the 3rd steep it still has a fantastic flavor.
I will definitely be buying way more when I run out, which will be very soon.
