Thanks to Zen Tea for a sample of this.
I have to admit that Genmaicha’s are growing on me. They’re not bad, and nice and hearty for a green tea. This is definitely one of the better ones that I’ve had. You can taste the toasted rice but also the green tea, which is a nice surprise. This is a yummy tea, and while it’s not necessarily something I would drink everyday – it is something that holds up nice to two or three resteeps and is still full of flavor.
Also, this tea is SUPER green. I recommend drinking this out of a white or clear cup so you can really enjoy this color.
