From Great Tea Road Co.

We are not sure when exactly this tea was created. We have heard it was about 80 years ago or so. Rice is the main stable of Asians. Since they have an abundance of it, with a high cost of tea leaves at the time, it was being roasted and added to tea to create a new flavor. It gives a comforting quality. We normally brew it hot but it can be enjoyable as iced.

INGREDIENTS: Tea and Roasted Rice

CAFFEINE LEVEL: Low

BREWING DIRECTION: About 6 grams per 8oz, 90c for two minutes. Multiple brews.

ORIGIN: Uji, Japan

GOOD TO KNOW: Keep away from sunlight, and strong odor. If possible, in an airtight container.

SkySamurai’s mystery advent tea #7  backlog from 12/20
Appears to be a genmaicha without the popped rice – simply the unpopped rice (at least in my sample.)  The scent is pure Honey Smacks cereal.   The flavor is very much like Honey Smacks cereal with an underlying umami vegetal flavor.  The blend was mostly the unpopped rice, with only a few green leaves, so I’m actually surprised the green tea flavor is even in the cup. Genmaicha never gets old for me — a cup of Sunday comfort.  My guess: genmaicha! Was I correct? Yes.  Another tea shop I have never heard of before.
Steep #1 // 1 teaspoon for full mug // 32 minutes after boiling  // 2 minute steep
