I have been trying to do a sipdown of the way-too-many teas I have on my shelf and this one came to work with me today. I brewed it strong — 2 bags in my usual cup — and maybe a bit longer than recommended. I’m drinking it plain because I just didn’t want to dilute it, after a whiff of that toasty nutty scent.

This is still the only genmaicha I’ve tried and I still love it. Next time I’m going to try a loose variety, though. I think Numi offers this loose on their website, or maybe I should try Adagio. Any other strong recs out there aside from Adagio?

P.S. I just ordered some from David’s Tea and from Den’s!

Den’s Genmaicha is amazing! I have their extra green and houji genmaicha, both are fantastic.

Barb

I ordered Genmaicha Extra Green with Matcha. Thanks for the extra confirmation!

My other favorite is this: http://www.fantastictea.com/ujinotsuyu-uji-tokuyo-genmaincha-japanese-green-tea-with-roasted-rice.html

Insanely cheap, but so good! I drink it iced all summer.

Barb

Wow, iced? I’ll have to remember this link — because they are currently sold out and I need to stop buying tea anyway!

Alphakitty

If there are any Japanese/Asian grocery stores near you they probably carry this, it’s a pretty popular brand. And yes, I ice mine! Cold brew it actually, we go through around a pitcher a day.

Barb

No Japanese specifically, but that’s a good idea to look at Asian groceries. I’ll keep an eye out.
