Genmai Cha is Japanese tea that combines popped brown rice kernels, corn, and tender green tea leaves. This tea has a mild taste of green tea with a hint of roasted rice that some find close to the taste of popcorn. This is one of the most popular teas at restaurants in Japan.

The liquor is a bright yellow-green and has a sweet, nutty, vegetal flavor with a thicker mouth feel than most green teas. This would go perfectly with the goat’s milk cheese my dad brought back from Holland last year, pity that it is long gone (and would be moldy and disgusting by this point even if I had any left!)

This is one of my all-time favorite teas. The flavor reminds me faintly of popcorn.
Mild brown rice paired with awesome green tea, and it’s just lovely. This is one I always go back to.

My first Genmaicha. I can’t say I was thrilled with the taste. There was a definite “grain” taste in it, which, while expected, wasn’t what I had hoped for. It tastes more like a breakfast cereal than a tea.

Very mild. I brewed this round for about a minute. I think next steep will be a couple minutes. Nice roasted flavors and rice aromas.

This tea is very good. It is good because while it looks very basic, and is indeed a from of green tea, it is unique, and very strong in flavour, but not overwhelming. It is a relaxing tea. The rice flavour is really tasty. There is not too much to write about this tea, so its sorta one of those teas you just have to try.
