A review of Genmai-cha by Yamamotoyama
Genmai-Cha is Green tea with roasted brown rice. Since having tried this Houjicha with its roasted flavoring, I thought let me try some of my older teas.
This Genmai-cha is in tea bags sealed individually. So I take one tea bag and put this in my cup and pour into my cup the hot water already boiled. I let to steep for a few minutes. And already the air is filled with that heady roast. Not as prevalent as the Houjicha or the Haiku teas but similarly so.
This tea’s color is a lovely light green tea, and I can smell the nutty brown rice coming through in the tea’s aroma.
This tea makes for a very soothing choice after meals and can be consumed throughout the day.
