10/7/12 – Bought today at local Asian Supermarket – The one that sell frog legs, for 2.59. I peeked inside and they are foil wrapped hermetically sealed, gonna bring a few with me on the road this week.
10/8/12 – Wow! I really like this! Tastes like matcha flavored rice crispies! Yum!

12/6/2012 I boosted this tea rating. Every time I drink it I crave sushi! Yum. I drink it in the evening. I love it – and there’s been a sale at the Midtown Manhattan Japanese store – a box for only 1.68. Wow!


You should have bought the frog legs too and cooked them up to have on the side. ;)

It tastes good, not amazing. I finished the cup, I was really hoping it would taste much better than this, but I’ve had better genmaicha before.. It’s still drinkable though, I prefer loose. I’ve got to say that though.

Not the best green tea ever, but certainly one of my favorite Japanese green tea in tea bags. For loose leaf, I would recommend Hibiki-an green tea—but for tea bags for the office or travel, these are quite good and also convenient to use. The brewed tea is full flavored, because each tea bag is sealed in a foil packet for freshness and the tea is not whole leaves but very tiny broken leaves and green tea powder. So, overall, I recommend these for office and travel, but not necessarily if you are looking for something special to brew at home. (This review is for their small paper tea bags, not the larger nylon style tea bags).

Reminds me of the tea they stocked in my room at the ryokan I stayed in Kyoto – might even be the same brand! Great for all occasions and moods.

This is my new favorite green tea. It’s vegetal, savory, a bit sweet, and super comforting. I drink this throughout the day, and it doesn’t keep me awake if I have a cup at night. I steep it for two minutes.

oh yes, this is a good travel mug tea. make sure you get a stainless-lined travel mug, i notice too much plastic in the plastic ones. at ANY rate, as someone else noted, not my favorite genmai cha in the world, but quite nice for an afternoon spent on wifi at the rec center, waiting while the kiddo was doing his lego club thing. quite nice. i will be restocking once i’m done with this box.
