Bancha and matcha make a good combo, as I expected. Maybe I just don't like genmaicha in general, but I don't care for what the rice adds to this; it almost has a burnt popcorn smell, but less harsh than that. Aside from that, it's pretty good, but I think I'll just get bancha or sencha after I finish this.

Update: I've found that it's much better with a lower brewing temperature, even lower than I normally go for green tea. The flavors blend better and the rice is mellower. I still haven't decided whether it's worth the extra price over plain bancha, but I do like the flavor of the matcha.
