I was very intrigued by this tea. I dislike green tea, but this had toasted rice and bits of popcorn in it. It's very interesting-looking, loose. I was really interested in how it tasted.
It smells like popcorn or rice cakes and cooked greens - maybe spinach or kale. Not a bad aroma, but not one I associate with tea.
The flavor was vegetable and toasted (not smoky, a big difference). I think, in percentages, there's little actual tea in the composition. It appears to be mostly rice, and when boiling water hits it, it foams up a little.
All in all, an interesting tea. I like it.

This is not a tea of kings. Genmaicha originates from Japanese peasants using additives to make their sencha last longer--but this particular additive evidently caught on, since it's still consumed today. Though weaker than a typical green tea, this has a hearty, satisfying flavor that seems particularly palatable for children, and is easy to consume on any casual occasion.
