Picked this up at my local Japanese market and I love it. The tea comes out this bright green and the notes of roasted flavoring from the brown rice blends really well with the matcha. A very mild manner tea that would go perfect with some food or just a nice cup to unwind with later in the day.

Years ago I tried Genmai Cha and didn’t like it, but now my tea tastes and brewing habits have changed. I’m pretty sure I would enjoy it. :)

You should also try blending grain teas with different teas as well. It’s definitely similar to genmai cha but you get to control the roasted flavoring however you want. I recommend trying some Buckwheat tea with a sencha to start and the blend as your heart desires after. I like a stronger hint of roasted flavoring.

I’always wanted to try Buckwheat Tea, & I really enjoy Sencha. Have you ever tried Soybean Tea? It was so good-so sweet with no sweetener. Then I’d eat the soybeans-usually plain, but sometimes with just a little sugar or honey. It was rather filling, & a good light lunch. :)

For buckwheat tea, I recommend getting this: http://www.teao2.com/puripan-loose-leaf-herbal-tea-tartary-buckwheat-35061.html
I love Puripan. They used to have a shop open near my house but they closed… :( Luckily I can still find their teas online!

Thanks Anna, I’ll try some soon {bookmarking page}. My Soybean tea is really hard to find, but there are other sources out there, probably are similar.

I just finished my Genmaicaha sample from H & S 10-28-11, and I really enjoyed it. I’m gonna send you a surprise sample from H & S. I really hope you enjoy it….:))
