The matcha really adds to my enjoyment of this tea. It tastes fresh and more green but still with the distinctive genmaicha flavor. I enjoy this one mainly by adding a sencha to it to cut down on the genmaicha taste a little more but still retain some for novelty.

This was one of the samples in my Den’s sampler. If you haven’t ordered this yet, I highly recommend it. Only $3.

This tea was very good. I love the toasty flavor the added matcha makes it that much greener. Mmmm. All the things I love about genmaicha.

It’s ok- I’m not sure genmaicha is my thing. I don’t really like roastiness in my tea.

I didn’t think genmaicha tea would be as enjoyable as my refreshing sencha or energizing and umami-filled matcha, but a Den’s Tea sampler arrived quickly at my doorstep to defeat such notions. Immediately after ripping open the silver pouch, saturated green matcha powder and the scent of toasted rice greeted me. In terms of steeping, for fear of bringing out too much matcha bitterness, I allowed boiling water to cool for about 3 minutes before steeping for exactly 30 seconds. A muddy, but bright green cup was produced that both smelled and tasted wonderful. As you bring the cup towards you, the scent of seaweed and toasted rice wafts up. There was a slight, lingering bitterness that followed the smooth, vegetal beginning. As the tea drew nearer to the bottom of my cup, the seaweed flavor became more present. Definitely a treat for the senses and worthy of a try, especially if rice-based snacks elicit nostalgic memories for you (ahh…bin bin rice crackers).

The small dry leaves and little pieces of toasted rice and popcorn are all coated graciously in matcha. It smells very toasty and nutty.

Brewing this according to Den’s instructions.

First infusion gave me a radioactively green cup that smelled a lot like the dry leaves do. It tastes surprisingly less toasty than it smells. There is a very prominent toasted aftertaste, but while sipping It tastes very green. Probably the matcha. I don’t know If I like genmaicha or not. I enjoy drinking it but I don’t see myself ordering it in the near future.

Kruthy no like Genmaicha! Bleech. I’ll give genmaicha another chance sometime, but the addition of the roasted rice or whatever it is just does nothing for me at this time. I don’t like the aroma and I don’t like the taste.
