About the Tea

Genmaicha is a classic tea blend, generally consisting of Japanese green tea and toasted brown rice. Our take on this classic blend is a fantastic combination of high-grade Chinese Mao Jian green tea and organic California-grown brown rice — toasted in house! The natural chestnut notes of the green tea blend perfectly with the warm nutty notes of the toasted rice, with smooth citrus and sweet agave notes in the background. This is a delicious Genmaicha made with only the highest quality ingredients.

I was already sipping on a cup of this when my mom dropped by a flat of fresh picked local strawberries. I continued sipping it while I was cutting up strawberries to freeze and munching on a few. This combination was divine! Who would have thought? I will have to sip another cup of this before I finish off my flat of strawberries this weekend. <3

So, after my last blood test came back with more positive than negative, my doctor (who literally has the largest cup of coffee on his desk constantly that it could be considered a bucket) finally gave me the green light on drinking tea and eating fairly normal food again.
I started back into the tea world drinking genmaicha.
It just appealed to me.
While I was out of the tea world, I drank lukewarm water(and pretended it was tea) and ate pretty much only liquids, wore my husbands sweat shirts and binge watched Primeval and crocheted a weird blanket without a pattern, and wore lots of loud perfumes. (Don’t worry, People I trade tea with, the tea and perfumes are kept on complete opposite ends of the house and never “visit” eachother;)
I think the loud perfumes made me feel somehow more brave.
So, anyway, now that I can drink tea again I made a small tea purchase and bought some of this from Whispering Pines.

The dry leaf smells nutty and almost a bit chocolately.
The tea itself smells just slightly nutty then all I get is a nice green tea aroma.
I am not getting that big, bold popcorny, ricecake odor that most of the genmaicha’s I have tried have.
It smells more muted, gentler. Not so roasty toasty.
The taste is much like the smell, a gentler genmaicha.
The green tea itself is really the star with this tea and not so much the rice.
Its there, just more in the background.
That being said, the green tea used here, is very nice quality, I believe.
No bitterness at all, a very nice bright green tea.
If you don’t like popcorn theater notes mixed with your green tea, or want to start into genmaicha gently then this is the tea for you.
If you like a major popcorn and ricecake taste to your genmaicha than this tea might leave you wanting.
