I am pretty new to genmaicha. Have only had one other one, which was tasty but not organic. I’m very interested in the organic teas now, after learning about so many pesticides on conventional grown ones. Anyway, I just opened my packet of tea, that I received a week after ordering (pretty good from Japan!), brewed it up according to Hibikis directions. It is a beautiful green with a lovely fragrance. I can smell the tea and the rice. The flavor is outstanding, I am drinking it as I write this. I am becoming quite addicted to gemaicha and love being able to order it direct from the farm.
