From ESP Emporium

“Genmaicha” means natural rice. This specialty is made from Bancha tea, to which approximately 50% roasted or popped rice grains have been added. The incomparable taste is characterized by the mildness of the Bancha tea and is ideally complemented by the pleasant, slightly sweet and nutty caramel note. Thanks to the low caffeine content and the fine mildness, this tea can be consumed all day long. Also here, green tea beginners can make their first positive experience. The Japanese prefer this tea for the afternoon hours.

Ingredients: green tea, peeled rice.

Serving Size: 1 level tsp. /6oz serving

Brew Temp: 176 to 194 degree F

Brew Time: 2 to 3 Minutes

Additional notes: In more OLD tea news, this genmaicha is six years old and one of my oldest teas but I had the inspiration to mix a genmaicha with a flavored milk oolong (which ended up being the also ancient Tealux Milk Oolong). The genmaicha kind of takes over, probably because the oolong ended up being brewed with very cool water. I think it’s an awesome concept, but I just need to mix the right two teas…. however, I didn’t want to use any 52Teas marshmallow genmaicha because I have verrrryyy little of that left, and that can stay awesome on its own. (even though that also sounds great too — marshmallow genmaicha/ milk oolong. Ooooooo Anne should make a marshmallow oolong! Does anyone know if Anne already did make a marshmallow oolong?)

edited to add: The second steep today is MUCH more like I imagined this lovely flavor profile. I think it’s because the previously steeped tea had time to sit there overnight and ‘soak’ — the toasty things were probably expanding and flavor was released. And then the oolong unraveled more. It’s so so good, even with older teas. I’m glad I didn’t toss my leaves out, so I can do a third steep later…

I had genmaicha with my lunch today!

Interestingly enough, I watched a YouTube video not long ago that claimed mixing Milk Oolong with Silver Needle produced a flavor profile that tasted like a “bubblegum tea”. I want to try it! I haven’t yet, though. Let me see if I can find it, since it has the ratios…

Oh cool. :D And this poor tea had such a high rating from me way back when (especially for any green tea). Oh well, still delicious.

OH and my other tea today was a ripe pu-erh (and you had your Ethiopian pu-erh) but then again, the first cup was that old Keemun, so I tend to drink half the tea types in a day. haha.

Mastress Alita

Sadly I couldn’t finish my pu, because the coffee in it upset my stomach. The genmaicha with my lunch helped settle it, and the green tea in my water bottle were lovely, though. And I tend to only drink herbals in the evenings… a teapot worth of herbal tea each night!

Kittenna

Marshmallow oolong sounds yummy. I don’t think she’s done one of those, especially not a green one?

Mastress Alita

You know, flavored/blended oolongs are far too under represented in general, in my opinion. And I tend to usually enjoy the ones I try, too!

Kittenna

Definitely agree.

Nattie

Frank’s 52Teas did a tiramisu oolong which was amazing, I wonder if Anne would ever reblend that one…

tea-sipper

Ah yes, I think I have some of Frank’s Tiramisu around here…

Nattie

Luckily I have a couple of cups left too and it’s ageing very well (:

Evol Ving Ness

Tiramisu Oolong! Yes, please. Sign me up.

Kittenna

I also have some of this tea, which I apparently liked… feeling a desire to dig it out, now. I’ve seen it recently.

Kittenna

This tea being, Tiramisu Oolong.

Nattie

Do it do it do it! And then write a note saying how Anne should reblend it >:D

Kittenna

Ahaha. I’ll pull out out, assuming I can find it, and put it in the lineup to drink once I’m feeling better :D

Kittenna

@Nattie – thanks to you, my two 52teas bins are now organized by blender (Anne vs Frank), and Tiramisu Oolong is sitting over by the kettle. Bonus, I found a few teas that were mis-binned (unclear how I screwed that up) and had been wondering about. :D
