Thank you Dexter for sharing this with me. It is a good genmaicha – roasty with a little bit of butter and grass from the base. A very pleasant cup, though, there is nothing particularly outstanding that I would go out of my way to stock it. I am glad I got to try it out though so thank you once again :).


Interesting – I like this one…. Can I ask what’s your favorite genmaicha? LOL If there is one out there that is significantly better than this I should be looking for it. ;))


There is not one that I can think of that I like more that is not flavored but to me, most genmaichas are similar with just subtle differences. This one is very good but Lupicia isn’t exactly the most accessible so I don’t think it is unique enough to warrant placing an order just for this. I would maybe add it to an order if I was already making one though.


OK fair enough. I just thought maybe you knew of a SPECTACULAR one that I didn’t know about…. :))


No I don’t but if I find one, I will let you know. Honestly though, I tend to prefer the flavored genmaichas like Japon.


Japon was the first flavored gemaicha I have had and it is delicious, but I also have a special place in my heart for plain genmaichas. I’m always looking for new ones to try.


I LOVE Verdant’s Loashan Black Chocolate Genmaicha – that’s probably my favorite. Plain genmaicha, I too keep looking for one that’s the right balance of toasty roasty to green. I really like genmaicha, but I think in my heart I know that my favorite genmaicha is a hojicha. Or what I’m trying to say is that I think if I’m in the mood for that style – hojicha works better for me…

This is a great genmaicha!

Thanks for sending this to me Dexter!


:)) I like this one too. The version with black bean is FANTASTIC too.


Oooh, sounds intriguing!

This is the first genmaicha I’ve tried, so I can’t really compare it to much else, but I really liked it. It’s very light and sweet and toasty.

This was my freebie tea from Lupicia today. It’s quite yummy, but of course I just adore genmaicha in general.
