This was my first introduction to Genmaicha Matcha which has variations on the spelling. Its still my favorite with the green tea powder adding a depth of flavor and the popped rice just a hint of grainy sweetness. The preparation doesn’t lend itself to rebrewings, the first cup is a strong green that feels like drinking springtime. There are notes of barely and wheat, grass and citrus. I have rebrewed but the resulting cup seems thin and weak. I am looking for replacements for this tea as Infusions of Tea does not seem to be resurfacing but no other brand has had such a depth of flavor.
Flavors: Baked Bread, Bamboo, Grass, Lemon Zest, Roasted Barley
