From Yuuki-cha

This organic genmaicha, made by our farmer in Kyoto, is the perfect blend of organically cultivated brown rice and first harvest organic sencha (not bancha or second harvest leaves). It produces a smooth, mellow, yet tasty cup of tea with a fresh toasty brown rice flavor. If you’re into drinking genmaicha you won’t be disappointed with this one! Refreshing, light and low caffeine.

This is an organic sencha genmaicha from Kyoto. The rice is brown rice from Nara Prefecture and the sencha is first harvest aka shincha versus bancha. For the most part, it is a good genmaicha and has nice toasty brown rice notes. I found it to be very temperature sensitive though.

I made it with 160Fwater in a banko kyusu. At 185F it was far too brisk for me. Astringent, extremely drying on my tongue, bitter. So I dropped the temperature down to 170F and then finally 160F. At this temperature, I got the familiar mellow aroma, umami, and a much better balance of sweet and bitter taste, less bitterness and was savory, had vegetal notes of greens, like grass, spinach. I re-steeped it 3 times. I also found making it in spring water was best. 170F was good too though.

It is a good price for organic first harvest sencha genmaicha. Recommended.

Hi Kawaii! I’m not sure how I feel about shincha in a genmaicha… I feel like I really like the combination of the mellower bancha flavor with the rice, and it would be weird with a more vegetal, umami-forward base…

I’ve always preferred bancha in my genmaicha as well.

I agree with both of you! I didn’t really care for this one compared to the bancha flavor.

This is an okay genmaicha. There’s more toasted rice in here than tea. Just a basic genmaicha taste, quite drinkable but not particularly memorable. Tastes good by itself, as a cold brew, and makes a good base for blending with other teas.

I bought this last year and enjoyed it. It lasted awhile and just finished it up this summer. I enjoy it with meals (which is unusual for me as I usually drink all my teas on their own) but this one makes me hungry. What teas did you blend it with?

I felt like this one doesn’t taste very fresh and mostly consists of toasted rice. So I remedy that by mixing in some regular sencha or sometimes sakura sencha to give it a nice floral kick.

Tarui Tea Farm Organic Genmaicha from Yunomi, with those popcorn looking pieces in it, is the best genmaicha I’ve tried.
