From Capital Teas

Known as the ‘People’s tea of Japan’ or ‘Popcorn Tea’, Genmaicha is an all day tea. Roasted rice kernels add a slightly toasty and nutty flavor to the tea, resulting in a refreshing and clear liquor tinged with a slightly olive tint. This tea’s aroma has spicy warm hues of roasted rice. Pairs well with sushi and other Japanese food. Wonderful!

Special thanks to The Purrfect Cup for this one! This seems ‘cleaner’ than most Genmaicha’s I have tried…at least to look at the post-infused liquid, that is. It has that over the top roasty/toasty popped corn/popped rice aroma – but it sure is welcomed!



This is GOOD. This is better than good!

This is a WONDERFUL Genmaicha. Among the best I have tried!
It IS clean as well as roasty/toasty/popped/and GREEN. Very lovely!


This one sounds good. I am mostly a Oolong lover a long with ripe and raw puerh. As for green tea the one I go to most is Long Jing. Always wanted to give a good quality Genmaicha a try. Will have to add one to the list to try. Thanks for the review.


oooh, I am going to Washington Dc later this month, I might need to go there!


Funny story is I almost worked at Capitol Teas, I worked at the Teavana in Annapolis and was offered at job at the Capitol Teas in downtown Annapolis but ended up staying at Teavana since my boss gave me a slight raise. Ha but anyways, I’ve been looking to try a Genmaicha, as someone whos tried many kinds would you recommend this to start?

I don’t tend to enjoy green teas. I drink them but I don’t “get” them. Hopefully you all are following me. Anyway I think I found a green I can get behind! The toasty and nutty flavor is awesome in this green tea. So flavorful and yes I may have eaten the rice pieces too. I can’t describe the smell for you because I can’t really smell a thing at the moment. But I will tell you this has turned into my afternoon go to cup since i picked it up last weekend in DC. :)

This is a really lovely Genmaicha – thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending it my way.

Sweet, toasty, and delicious. I love the roasted rice flavor of Genmaicha, it reminds me of my favorite part of rice when I cook it, the part that gets slightly caramelized at the bottom of the pan in my rice steamer… sweet, a little crispy … just YUM! Combine that with the flavor of the sweet, vegetative taste of green tea. Just lovely.

Thanks for this tea, my sister!

’Here’s Hoping’ Teabox Round #4 – Tea #10

Parceling this one out, I got mostly toasted rice in my teaspoon, so the green tea was a little scarce. Tasty anyway! The green tea was actually larger and longer than I usually see in genmaicha, so the flavor wasn’t as light as I thought it would be. (Though that doesn’t make sense – I thought tiny leaves mean stronger taste.) I always love a roasty toasty genmaicha!
