This is much better than genmaicha I have purchased stateside, but I believe that is largely because I tend to get genmaicha in import grocery stores, not tea shops, in large, cheap quantities.

This was an absolutely shocking shade of green when I poured the first cup. But it began to fade and darken almost immediately.

The flavor is both darkly vegetal and brightly toasty. I start to get a sense with this of what genmaicha may be all about.

The brew also has a sticky thickness in the mouth, almost like a broth. Which is not unpleasant, but… unexpected.

I don’t think genmaicha will ever be my truly favorite favorite of green teas, but this is very tasty.

This is so interesting. Next time you make some, let me know so I can try it. I never did have genmaicha over there. Or if I did I forgot. The shades of green in the teas I saw over there delighted me!

Oh dear. I’ve long since drank it all, luv.
