From Yunomius

Genmai (toasted rice) is the ingredient blended with green tea to make the traditional Japanese tea, genmaicha. Make your own genmaicha with Obubu’s toasted sweet mochi rice genmai.

Note to the powers that be: I didn’t know what category to put this under, since it goes into tea but it’s not technically a tea or an herb … so I put it under food, since … rice is in fact, a food. ~Liberteas

This was my favorite part of September’s Yunomi Mystery Tea Tasting Club’s package – we got a package of Toasted Rice so that we could make our very own genmaicha using whatever teas we wanted to use. Awesome right?

I first tried brewing it without any tea addition and it was yummy … reminded me a bit of a thin horchata without the spices and creamy consistency.

Then I tried it with the Bancha and the Houjicha that were included in September’s Yunomi package, and YUM! Then I tried making a black tea genmaicha using a Hawaiian grown black tea … and it too was yum.

Here’s my full-length review so you can check out all the details of each tasting:

PS: I’m not going to rate this one, since it’s not really a tea but a tea component. But I highly recommend this to all genmaicha lovers.
