    It tastes...wrong. Just wrong.
    February 16, 2013
    When I read about this tea on this site, I thought it would be worth the college try. Green tea with rice? It sounded so interesting! HOWEVER…while it brewed, it smelled horrible. It smells EXACTLY like burning rice. So the smell was a turn off but I remained optimistic and tried it. With the first two sips, I didn’t like it and thought it needed more sugar. Didn’t work. Then I tried it with honey since some teas are better with honey than sugar, or vice versa. Nope. Still didn’t like it. It tasted like that breakfast cereal with the frog on the box. “Smacks” cereal-flavored tea…no, thank you. If you want a relaxing and tasteful tea that isn’t overpowering, I would not recommend Genmai Green Tea. But if you like the smell of burnt rice and the taste of Smacks cereal, by all means buy this tea.

    Wonderful Tea

    I LOVE this tea. Its subtle yet soothing flavor is perfect after those long days of work and classes to unwind. Normally I'm a chai tea person and it's still my favorite tea flavor, but this is my second favorite. Green and ginseng tea is a must-have. :)
