Japanese Genmaicha

Genmaicha is a popular Japanese blend of toasted or puffed rice and green tea. Popcorn is occasionally substituted for puffed rice in western blends of Genmaicha. This tea was also called "poor man's tea" or "people's tea" because it reduced the price of a cup of tea by using rice as a filler, however it is now a blend that in enjoyed by all Japanese.

This is by far one of the best Genmaichas I have had to date. The tea appears to be a very high grade. The flavour is smooth, nutty, rich and toasty. I’m really impressed with the quality and I can’t get enough!

The green tea in this blend is very flavourful, definitely green/vegetal, but still quite smooth. The toasted rice is such a fantastic flavour to blend with the tea as it is slightly sweet, slightly burned (in the best way), and adds a robustness to the cup.

Like it, probably not my favorite but still very enjoyable.

A very interesting tea with the burnt rice smell!  Which by the second sip is very nice.  A very nice mild tasting tea.

At first, I was unsure of this tea.  But after one sip I was sold.  It disappears first in our house.  The nutty flavour is just enough to give it a nice umph.  I tend to lighter teas and husband to darker - but this one is enjoyed by both of us!
