This was my first introduction to Genmaicha Matcha which has variations on the spelling. Its still my favorite with the green tea powder adding a depth of flavor and the popped rice just a hint of grainy sweetness. The preparation doesn’t lend itself to rebrewings, the first cup is a strong green that feels like drinking springtime. There are notes of barely and wheat, grass and citrus. I have rebrewed but the resulting cup seems thin and weak. I am looking for replacements for this tea as Infusions of Tea does not seem to be resurfacing but no other brand has had such a depth of flavor.
Flavors: Baked Bread, Bamboo, Grass, Lemon Zest, Roasted Barley
It’s got a strong taste to it. Perfect for blending with milk if you’re into that (I’m not) and even with it out it, a nice breakfast tea or something to drink in the winter. Naturally sweet without being too overpowering. A nice gateway tea for recent loose-leaf converts.
Included this in a taste test with 4 other assam teas I have. This one came out #3 of the 5, ahead of SpecialTeas Rembeng and Adagio Assam Melody, but behind TeaSource’s Panatola and Ramanugger assam teas. I drink my assams black with sweetener. I steep them 2-2 1/2 minutes to keep astringency away. This is a very good Assam tea.
I have been buying steady supplies of this blend from Infusions of Tea for about four years. It may easily be my favorite herbal in the world! Served hot in winter or iced in summer, it reminds me of picking wildflowers. The flavor is slightly tropical, but not cloying. The aroma is floral but clean. Sadly this is only available at Infusions’ single tea shop a few blocks from my former apartment.
