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: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/10/01/yunomi-monthly-mystery-tea-samplers-club-genmai-toasted-rice-kyoto-obubu-tea-plantation/
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.
