From Arbor Teas

This organic Genmaicha Extra Green is an innovative blend of Genmaicha (pronounced GEN-my-cha) and Matcha (pronounced MA-cha). Called the best Japanese tea invention of the 20th century, this exceptional combination of Genmaicha’s toasted aroma and Matcha’s rich green character brings forth a pleasing and harmonious flavor that is bolder, sweeter and slightly more bitter than our traditional Genmaicha. Unlike many “Japanese” green teas available in the United States, this organic Genmaicha Extra Green is actually grown in Japan.

Sustainability is a cornerstone of Arbor Teas’ business philosophy. In addition to offering an exclusively organic selection of teas, they recently became the first tea company to offer their whole catalog in 100% backyard compostable packaging. They’ve also carbon-offset the entire supply chain of their products, from origin to the customer, making Arbor Teas the greenest option for Earth-conscious tea drinkers, and one of few tea companies recognized by Green America.

Tasting Notes:
Dry Leaf Smell: nori, rice

Flavor: sushi, well nori and rice
Body: Medium
Aftertaste: a little bitter
Liquor: translucent honey yellow-green

I am not a big green tea drinker in general, but I found that I do love genmaichas. It may be because they remind me of the rice and nori in sushi. It is a nice soothing cup, not as good as the Teaflection Loose Leaf Green Tea ‘Japanese Genmaicha Tea’ but a close contender. This tea has more of the green tea flavor than rice flavor is why I favor the other one personally, if you wish for a higher green tea to rice mixture you’ll prefer this one.
