Very fragrant and sweet smelling. The addition of the matcha powder makes the first steep vibrant green and particularly savory, with initial light vegetable broth flavor quickly going sweet with plenty of toasted rice cerealness overlaid. Second longer steep still has the toasted rice aroma but the flavor is more like roasted sencha. Still messing with brew parameters but got a third steep, things only beginning to become more muted. Overall delicious
My mother is from Tokyo, Japan and she’s 93 and she says this genmai matcha is amazing...best ever and she’s had a lot of tea in her lifetime. So, give it a try!
This is the best Genmai Matcha that I have tried. It's comparable to what you get in a good Japanese restaurant. I use one teaspoon in a cup of hot water. It's ready to drink in 30 seconds. It has a very nice aroma.
So very delicious! 🤗
This is a really good, balanced genmaicha. The rice contributes a nice, nutty flavor, and the matcha improves the flavor. Recommended for somebody looking for something different from other green teas, as the nutty flavor from the rice is prominent.
