Each Genmaicha is different. Every cup has most of the same notes but also has it’s own uniqueness. I’ve tried three different Genmaicha bags and all were a bit different. So far my favorite has been Indigo’s Organic Genmaicha but this one is also quite good. Like all green teas you have to make sure you do not over steep the tea or it will become too bitter.

Rooibos, pineapple, mango, papaya, almond, coconut, walnut, hazelnut. Nutty paradise indeed. This is a good tea for anyone who loves nuts and Rooibos. Although I feel this is a weird blend of flavors . I love nuts and I love the fruit mix but they just don’t work well together in this tea. It still has that smooth Rooibos flavor with a nutty essence to it. The un-steeped smell is kinda weird too.

A lovely black flavored tea. For both the sweet and traditional tea drinkers. i love that they add real apple and almond pieces to their black tea. It has an unusual dry smell but not a bad unusual. I think it’s the mix of the almond and apple that makes it unusual. When steeped this tea is quite a delight. I’ve tried the tea plain and with honey but I like the extra sweetness that honey adds to it. However, having it plain is just as good.

Better iced or luke warm. The smell from the tea bag reminds me of walking through a pine forest, however, that does not come out in the taste when steeped. The berry flavors combine and cling together on your taste buds, not allowing you to truly depict which berries have been used. The apple is a nice add in to sweeten it up a bit. Add honey for a bit more sweetness.

They forgot to mention in the ingredients that it also contains prickly pear. Funky is the best way I can describe this tea. It’s not an undrinkable funky but I don’t think I would buy another cup or any loose leaf of this tea. It is very flavorful; almost to the point that my mouth feels overwhelmed. I drank it cold perhaps it would be better hot.

A lovely blend of Asian greens with strawberry and Rhubarb plus an unexpected addition of the Mallow flower, which I didn’t know about until I tried this tea. The dry smell of the tea is sweet and relaxing. It’s quite a smooth tea with the plant, berry, and flower combo. One must be careful to not let it over steep or the green tea will overpower the rest and as usual become bitter.

This tea is much better as it cools off. It’s a unique blend of berries with a unique flavor. The initial smell from the tin is pleasantly tart. Sounds weird but that truly is the best way to describe the way it hits your nose. The tartness, however, doesn’t transfer to the tea when steeped. Which is fine; I don’t think I could handle that smell in my nose and on my taste buds.

Bio

Stay at home mom of two kids. I’ve been drinking tea for quite awhile but figured now that my studies don’t have to reside on my job I can study up on tea. There is so much to learn!

Lately my tastes have been leaning toward unflavored blacks like Big Red Robe and Amba Thieves. I have a special place in my heart for greens though; especially Genmaicha.

I am a tea consultant for Tea Queens and Steeped Tea but I’m not good at pushing sales or home parties… But I do love to talk tea so if you have questions I would love to talk tea!
