Description

Reviews

The exceptional top tier Gyokuro Imperial is intuitively paired with toasted brown “genmaicha” rice resulting in a highly aromatic medium bodied green tea blend.

The taste is pleasant with a hint of nutty roasted rice and a mild aftertaste. Genmaicha is perfect with meals, warm conversation or quiet contemplation; especially popular during cold winter time. Genmaicha is sometimes referred to as popcorn tea because a few grains of the rice pop during the roasting process and resemble popcorn.

I like this. Umami, vegetal and sea weed notes from the gyokuro, and a nice roasty note from the rice. There’s also a hint of soapiness, but not strong or bad.

Oh and then right there at the bottom of the cup, honey notes!

Has this one early this morning. It’s a tasty tea to have with breakfast. I found it had a very nice roasted rice flavour with a very light green tea base. There was a hint of sweetness in the green tea. Sometimes I find some genmaicha’s too strong caffeine wise but this one was mild. Perhaps because there seemed to be more rice to tea. The green tea was a very dark leaf which looked like sencha. I brewed only for 1 min at 185 for two infusions. Another great tea from Tealux!

I’m torn because genmaicha almost seems like a waste of gyokuro! heh
