This is so good. It is a great example of what genmaicha is and should be. I would really suggest this one by TeaFrog if you are wanting to try genmaicha because it is smooth, buttery, and tastes like popcorn that is perfectly popped, not at all burnt or stale. I love drinking genmaicha in the afternoons and think that it is the one type of tea that so far I can NOT live without. Good job, TeaFrog! This is a perfect example of a classic.

You made the comment that once you had this tea, you wanted more. I am that same way! I wanted to order from the Tea Frog, but the shipping was more than the tea! So I ended up ordering from Upton Tea instead, I hope it is as good as this is from the TF!

Yeah, genmaicha is were it is at. I am looking forward to ordering from Den’s Tea since the company has great reviews and cheap prices. I think I like my genmaicha a little more bold all around than the one from TF although TF’s version is a good example of what genmaicha is.

Bio

Formally known as mrawlins2

I am a former coffee drinker turned tea lover.

Black tea is probably my favorite type of tea, but I rather enjoy most types… I’m even developing a taste for pu-erh.

Rating Scale:
0-10: This tea is either flavorless or just plain undrinkable. I will avoid these teas in the future.

11-20: I was only able to make it through a few sips before pouring the tea out.

21-30: I may have been able to make it through the first cup but the thought of having another has me cringing.

31-40: Teas in this range are not horrible, but nothing I would seek out in the future.

41-60: Would drink if offered, but would not purchase for myself.

61-70: Okay, nothing special

71-80: Enjoyable, but I have to be in the mood for these. Probably would purchase if I found a really great price.

81-90: Pretty good tea, will probably be one of my favorites.

91-95: These teas are really excellent. I wouldn’t necessarily run out and buy more of these (just because there are so many teas out there that I haven’t tried), but I would miss this tea.

96-99: Terrific, very impressive.

100: This special rating is reserved for teas that are absolutely perfect in my opinion. I will only give out a rating of 100 to one tea per category (Earl Grey, unflavored black, dessert tea, Irish Breakfast, etc). These are teas that I really want to have around.

Perfect Teas so Far:

Earl Grey: Saint Isaac’s Blend (Russian Earl Grey) from Upton

Dessert Tea: Marco Polo from Mariage Freres

Unflavored Black: Emperor’s Red from Premium Steap
