Thanks to Ian for the sample of this!

It’s interesting. I’ve had Gyokuro green tea before, but never a genmaicha. It’s different. I didn’t think I would taste the puffed rice as much as I do. The aroma is toasty and a little bit nutty. It’s bright, bright yellow-green – the exact same color as the grass outside! The flavor starts off with the toasty notes and then ends a lot more vegetal from the tea itself. I don’t dislike this, but I’m not sure I’d buy it… not really my thing. I can definitly see why other people like it though, and I’m glad I got to try it!

My granddaughter did not like this until she sweetened it and then she said it reminded her of these really good honey rice cookies at the Asian market that we all love to death. Made a big difference to her. I also put 2 tsp in a pot and then put 4 ice cubes on top to melt slowly. After awhile shake and pour out a bit. Keep doing this all day and you have a concentrated taste that is really different. You can add a bit of salt if you want.
