Craving a good cup of tea, but not in the mood to deal with the mess? We have just the solution for you!
Maeda-en is proud to offer you deliciousness and convenience all at the same time: crushed Genmai-cha (leaves AND rice!) are packed in mesh pyramid bags for maximum steeping & easy clean up. It brews a beautiful amber liquor, and tastes just like a whole leaf brew!

Brew 1 tea bag in 8 oz of par-boil water, for up to a minute, and enjoy.

This has a very nice toasted rice taste; I think I liked the toasted flavor better than the other genmaichas that I’ve tried.

That being said, the matcha flavor doesn’t come through very strongly, nor does the sencha. 1TTEN’s genmaicha has a very wonderful, sencha, fruity-like aftertaste. Den’s has a very nice mix overall (the matcha adds a definite, delicious sweetness). But this is still good and as I said, I really liked the taste of the genmaicha.

For their premium tea bags, so far this is a lot better than the sencha, but not as good as the gyokuro.

I bought this on a whim at my local Japanese store. I prefer Den’s genmai-cha to this greatly. It was ok, too much rice for me I think. It came out a green murky liquor. It tasted thick. It was good iced. I don’t think I would buy again.

Full disclosure: this tea was sent to me as a free sample by the vendor. However, there was no expectation that I would provide a review.

May as well move on to my other genmai-cha sample. This one a bit dustier and without so much rice.

Flavors are toasty but swing towards a sweet greenness quickly. Lingering glutamates from the rice stick on the palate. Still pretty rice heavy, but with more leaf and more kelpiness. Enjoyable, but simple.
