Tried this as a 50/50 mix with Maeda-en’s Kukicha last night. Plain and toasty with a brighter green background than just the genmaicha for a nice variation of its rustic hayloft taste. Not exacty what I needed but good to know.

Maeda-en’s Traditional GOLD Genmai-cha is made with late harvest sen-cha, tossed with popped rice for that malty, nutty flavor.
A great every day tea.
