From Yuuki-cha

This organic genmaicha, made by our farmer in Kyoto, comes with the addition of organic karigane! Karigane (not the same as lower quality stems called kuki) are the stems that are sorted during the processing of only first harvest high quality sencha and gyokuro. The karigane adds more depth and sweetness which gives this organic genmaicha a rather different edge. Once you start drinking this as a daily tea you are very likely to become hooked! A highly recommended daily Japanese green tea!

Thanks so Sil for passing along a sample of this one, originally from Hallieod.

My verdict? Fairly weak. Maybe because I’ve been eating, or maybe because I should have used more tea since there’s quite a bit of popped rice in here. I’ll try some more after the flavours in my mouth have dissipated a bit.

ETA: Sadly, this didn’t improve after sitting, and the second infusion was very weak. Hard to give this an accurate rating, unfortunately, but I probably wouldn’t pick it up again. I’ve had more flavourful genmaichas (and actually, I really like hojicha genmaichas too! More roastiness :D)

I received this in a swap from Hallieod awhile ago. Haven’t seen you around lately Hallie, if you see this have been thinking about you.
I’m not a fan of green tea. I’ve only had a couple of other genmaicha teas.
This is by far the best green genmaicha that I’ve had. No bitterness from the green, no grassy, just nutty, toasty, roasty goodness. This reminds me a little of the buckwheat tea that I liked so much. I added just a touch of sweetener, and it’s a little like cereal. I like it.
Wasn’t really feeling well tonight, this was just what I needed. Soothing and comforting.
Thank you Hallieod!!!!

It looks like somewhere along the way i forgot to log this as i’m down to my last cup of this. Hallieod sent this my way and i’ve been enjoying drinking it the 2-3 times that i’ve had it. it’s a pretty average genmaicha. nothing to write home about, but nothing that i would snub. Thanks again for sending this my way!

Roasted, floral and citrus flavours. The citrus flavour is so strong it makes me think that this tea may have had some flavour cross-contamination.
