Let me start by saying I’m not sure this is the right listing for this. I know it’s Yunomi and I know it’s Genmaicha. That’s all I know. Anyway, I guess I never reviewed this, even though I’ve been drinking it for a month and a half now.

I really can’t give distinct brewing parameters on this one because I brewed it with 5g for 1.5 minutes in 16 oz of water, and it was way too weak, so I stuffed about another two scoops of tea in and brewed it for another 45 seconds and it was much better.

Taste is… wonderful. I’ve been drinking this for awhile now so I can’t give you my first thoughts on it but my ongoing thoughs are that it is a nice balance between green tea vegetal and brown rice toasty. Just the perfect combination. It tastes like a green tea rice cake, If I would have to label the flavor. There is definite seaweed flavor to this, but that fine with me because I love seaweed. I would make seaweed salads if I knew where to get it! I’m also getting, as I said, that roasted flavor that tastes a bit like toasted bread. That’s pretty much the extent of this tea – seaweed and toast. It sounds like it would be disgusting but I adore it. For me, this is a great tea. I will recommend it however, knowing that many others might not go for it like I do. And that’s fine. To each their own.

But I love it. :)

This actually sounds really delicious. Very fitting for a Japanese meal, but also just comforting and yummy on its own.

I like to get those seaweed rice crackers sometimes (I don’t know how popular/common they actually are); that’s kind of what I’m imagining this tea to be like. Haha.

I love Yunomi! I get my genmaicha from them too, though I order the Kyoto Obubu Tea Farm sourced one. A favorite!

Genmaicha was one of the first kinds of straight tea that I really fell in love with; it’s been a while since I’ve kept a straight version stocked (I usually keep a fun, flavored twist on it in my cupboard now) but it’s still something I deeply enjoy.

Just an update. I had some of this the other day. I let my mom try it. She thought it was gross! LOL oh well. This is the same woman who I let try my YS Bai Lin and she said “It tastes like tea” so, I guess she’s just hopeless. Her palate is just not the same as mine. I should really stop trying to get her to convert!

Seaweed flavor, a little salty. Not much bitterness, very pleasant overall.

At first sip I didn’t like this tea that much. But as I drink it it is improving. The main note is a kind of a burnt note from the brown rice, not sure how else to describe it. There is a secondary note from the green tea, barely perceptible and somewhat grassy. Overall I like this tea.

I steeped this tea one time with 10g leaf and 190 degree water in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper for 1 min. 10g seems like a lot but those were the Yunomi directions.

I like genmaicha. I find it is very easy to drink.
