From Shui Tea

Japanese Genmaicha. Our take on genmaicha, a traditional blend of toasted rice and green tea enjoyed by millions of Japanese every day. Earthy and fresh tasting, Toasted Samurai is easy to drink cup after cup as you go about your day. Pairs well with sushi.

The components of this tea are very small compared to other Genmaicha I’ve had. The fragrance is clean and aqueous; think of cucumber or watermelon rind.

Once prepared, the aroma of toasty-goodness fills the room. Genmaicha always makes my mouth water. This one sets up as a nice honey color and the flavor of the toasted rice predominates over the green tea base.

I prefer a little more of a green tea profile. One of my favorite teas is Ryokucha by Samovar. However, that one also has Matcha powder which I believe technically makes it a Maccha-iri genmaicha? For a true Genmaicha, I’m thinking this is quite good.
