A convivial drink in Japan shared at home with friends. This unique tea is made with green tea and brown rice. Light golden color and nut-like flavor and aroma. The Rosengarten Newsletter* gives this tea 5 stars and says, "devastatingly delicious...wild nose that goes beyond toasted rice, almost to the buttery popcorn at the bottom of the bag. Huge and complex toasted flavors on palate. Smooth, round, non-astringent, thoroughly satisfying feel. A must".

"The toasty flavor of Genmai is very nostalgic for me. Just the aroma alone brings me back to memories of my mother soaking handfuls of toasted rice in her tea—right before she ate it with a spoon! I haven't yet experienced another tea that can bring me such a sense of home." - Alaina H. (Wholesale Marketing Manager)
The Genmaicha Tea I just ordered, first time with this one. was surprisingly, Typically, I am not a green tea fan because I love bold, full taste in my teas. Genmaicha is bold, smooth, and quietly exotic, it wraps you in awe. This one changed my mind and I am making pots of it for the family it's a new favorite, especially with temperatures cooling into the Fall :-)
Love the flavor, reminds me a lot of my childhood ... Thank you!
I usually don't care for green tea because I has little flavor,but this one is nutty goodness
Nutty and toasty, with a tendency to bitterness if left to steep too long. Love this for afternoons. The scent alone can revive and anchor me.
Wonderful and refreshingly Earthy flavor.
My husband is the green tea drinker in the family and has 6-7 different types. (I think it tastes like grass). He didn't even like this enough to take more than 3 drinks. We both think it smelled yucky when opening it. The added rice was just way off from the normal.
Gave the box to a friend who loved the smell of it. It's very different, just don't expect the normal green tea experience but may be worth trying .
