I drank this tea for the first time when I went to a Japanese restaurant. It was pretty good; it wasn’t as bitter as the Sencha green tea and there was a lighter taste to it. For me the fragrance was sweet, but there was a hint of rice taste to it. I enjoyed the light flavor it had.

This was a bit too charcoal-flavored for me. I couldn’t taste much else.

One of my favorite teas. Very rich, with a full body. Feels more like a meal than a tea.

Its quite warm in my part of the world. I can go without tights, and abandon my coat at lunchtime, and all is well. Bleh, I say. Bring me the cold weather instantly.
But still, its usually freezing in my office, and so I brought a sample of toasty genmai chai with me today.
This is a pleasant, but somewhat weak blend. Its very light, but the toasty notes ar at the forefront of each sip, and the greenness of the tea never gets vegetal.
I’m glad to have tried it.

Quite bitter with first infusion at 170 degrees. Next day, I did a 10 second rinse, then used cold water and a overnight cold steep. Much improved. Color was less cloudy after the quick rinse. Bitterness decreased and sweetness increased. Good everyday ice tea.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more
