In fairness, I’ve never had a genmaicha tea before now, and it may just not be my thing. But I really disliked this! If you remember puffed wheat cereal, it had a very particular scent that I get from this tea. (Oddly, it’s the puffed wheat scent, not the puffed rice scent to me.) And it definitely smells like popcorn. The brew really just tastes like slightly nutty boiled water. I can see how if I were a peasant trying to stretch my tea supply, this could work. But, well, I’m not. So I’ll be getting other stuff from here on out!
Flavors: Nutty, Popcorn, Rice, Wheat
