Tea of Inquiry (Loose) from Republic of Tea

Style: Genmaicha – Region: Japan

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5

For a genmaicha (which I enjoy in spring/summer) I really love this one - probably my favorite roasted-toasted brown-rice note-filled tea. Even good over ice - and unsweetened for a true grain-filled experience. I actually love this one - but if you are not a Genmaicha lover - you may not want to try this one. More ...

Brown Rice Tea Genmai-cha (16 ct.) from Yamamotoyama

Style: Genmaicha – Region: Japan

Super cheap and - if you can get it (try H-Mart or other Asian grocers) it's a good bagged Genmaicha option. Refreshing in summer with a roasty-toasty aroma. Grassy notes - and also a sweetness (I do not get a "Honey Smacks" note).

Can even be OK over ice.

Genmaicha from Harney and Sons

Style: Genmaicha – Region: Japan

50 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5

Roasty-Toasty but not worth the price - there are better (and also worse - see my other Gen Mai Cha reviews) versions available. If you are a Gen mai lover (Roasted rice/grain notes) this is a decent choice but no holy grail. Very nice in summer.

Gen Mai Cha from Two Leaves and a Bud

Style: Genmaicha – Region: China

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 14th, 2016

Just OK - and I did not get the "Honey Smacks" note - but there is an odd sweetness to this rice/grain tea. I generally love Gen Mai Cha - but 2 leaves version is just fair. Fortunately it is not too expensive - and I was able to try it at a local coffee/tea shop so now I know not to buy a whole box. Not bad - but t...

Genmaicha from ITO EN

Style: Genmaicha – Region: ?????

60 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5

The genmaicha is relatively grassy tasting with a bit of bitterness - but is still pleasant enough and certainly cheap enough to enjoy regularly. Good but not a holy grail.
