Genmai-Cha from Takaokaya

Style: Genmaicha – Region: Shizuoka, Japan

63 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5

Very mild, mellow flavor, but without being bland. This was good quality for a tea bag, and given that the tea bag did not seem to have the most generous quantity of leaf.

The brew is cloudy, as expected for a blend containing matcha, and the aroma is mostly of popcorn. More popcorn-like and less toasty than other...

Genmai Cha from Adagio Teas

Over the past year I have had some really mediocre genmaicha's, so I was pleasantly surprised when I recently tried Adagio Teas version of this Japanese classic. The initial sweet and nutty aroma of the dry tea transforms to a roasted rice and popcorn aroma as the tea steeps.

The translucent infusion has a nice lig...

Genmaicha from The Tea Spot

Style: Genmaicha – Region: Japan

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5

This tea was developed by the "lower" classes in Japan, to stretch out the expensive tea. I'm not usually a fan of Japanese greens,but I like this one because the toasty, popcorny, nuttiness makesa great combination with the greeniness of the tea itself. I think this is better than many I have had of genmaicha

GOLD GENMAI-CHA Brown Rice Tea from Maeda-en

Style: Genmaicha – Region: Japan

50 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 30th, 2010

A fairly strong, but light aroma, mostly of popcorn, a sort of light, toasty quality. Much less nutty than other genmaicha's.
