From Yunomius

Sencha from the town of Monou in what is now Ishinomaki City brews into a deep forest green with a strong astringency. With a 400 year history of tea farming, the town of Monou is the northernmost tea region, and the field managed by Sasaki-san is the northernmost tea field in Japan.

Monoucha Genmaicha blends Sasaki-san’s sencha with toasted rice grains as well as rice cracker balls (plain and matcha flavored) for a uniquely toasted nutty flavor.

Backlog:

This is one of the very best Genmaicha teas I’ve ever tasted.

It tastes exceptionally fresh and vibrant and sweet. A delightful roasty-toasty-ness to it. And something that’s a little different from other genmaicha – in addition to the Sencha tea and toasted/popped rice, this also has “rice cracker balls” in it, and this … just makes it taste better!

I love this stuff!

Rice pops!
This was a lovely genmaicha. The little rice krispies in this blend were fun too! The sample I had was mostly genmai’s and rice pops and less ‘cha.’ Delicious nevertheless.

Thank you Christina for sending some of this my way. :)
This is a pretty nice genmaicha. The green isn’t offensive – not too grassy, not astringent, but I thought there wasn’t enough roasty from the rice. This came across as more green tea than genmaicha. Maybe I’m being harsh, yes there is some toasted rice flavor, I just with there was a lot more.
Enjoying it, but not loving it. Thanks though for sharing – always happy to try new ones.

Sipdown!

Finished this off last night while working on some homework due today in my feature writing class. It was less umami than in previous infusions.

On a related note, I no longer have any genmaicha in the house. What are your favourites? I bought this from Yunomi, and although they have great stuff I don’t know if I want to make an order just for this. Any recommendations? I think my favourite genmaicha so far is Sloane’s Grand Genmaicha because it’s got a very brothy taste to it.

Cheap stuff from T&T. :) But I don’t generally drink genmaicha. I think the last time I had it regularly was when I was in Japan.

This brand, the Tokuyo Genmaicha, is what I’ve purchased in the past.

I am on again and off again with genmaicha. I’ve gotten some from Tealux (Tealyra) in small quantities and have been happy with their selection.

Christina / BooksandTea

I’ve tried the Tokuyo stuff (Uba, I think you sent me a bunch) and I remember thinking it was kind of “meh”.

Ubacat

Was that one Tealux? It might have been one I got from a Japanese supermarket.

Ubacat

Ah, it was Gyokuro Genmaicha from Tealux. I can’t remember what it was like. It’s been awhile since I had it.

Equusfell

I always tend to like matcha genmaicha’s better than plain genmaicha, only because it enhances the brothiness. I want my genmaicha to feel as thick as it smells, and that helps.

I have a wonderful 15 to 30 teabags of genmaicha from Japan that I’m making myself drink. What’s the best steep time and temp for this kind of tea? I’m only sometimes successful
