It’s called Konacha… it’s usually very cheap:

It usually comes from sencha… but you can find it from gyokuro as well.

You can read more about it there…

Thanks guys, I think it’s the Konacha just because it tastes almost like a sencha. I have some genmaicha from adagio in my tea cabinet, Faith. I like to drink it when I’m not feeling well, because I find it to be soothing.
