From Georgia Tea Company

Genmaicha is the Japanese name for green tea combined with roasted brown rice. It is sometimes referred to colloquially as “popcorn tea” because a few grains of the rice pop during the roasting process and resemble popcorn. This type of tea was originally drunk by poor Japanese, as the rice served as a filler and reduced the price of the tea; which is why it is also known as the “people’s tea”. Today it is consumed by all segments of society.

thank you yet again, momo! I love genmaichas so this was a nice surprise! I’m the first to review this one? I thought the sencha itself was interesting here, as the leaves are darker, skinnier, and less uniforrm in shape. And of course you’ve got the rice that genmaicha is known for, and a few pieces of the rice have popped to look like popcorn. The steep color after two minutes is a light yellow. The flavor is buttery with a bit of that roasty toasty flavor. The flavor is pretty light. With the second steep, I forgot to take the infuser out… so it went for twelve minutes. But the flavor didn’t get bitter! It was just a little bit more roasty toasty. I like this one, but I feel like the flavor is too light for me, even if it is oversteeped. I love tons of flavor!

This is a light genmaicha, but a nice one. There is a creaminess to the tea and clear grassy flavor with a hint of something vegetal. The rice flavor is present throughout the sip, but, as I mentioned before, it’s a light flavor. I don’t mind this since it gives the green tea, which is very nice, a chance to shine.

Another sipdown. I’m glad I gave this one a try!
