This is the first time I have tried Genmaicha and it certainly will not be the last. The taste of the toasted rice was definitely pleasant, but not at all overpowering. A very nice sweet drink that is quite easy to brew. I would definitely recommend it.

This is by far the best genmaicha I've ever had. It has a very noticeable, but not overpowering, toasted rice taste and aroma that greatly compliments the green tea's flavor. I expected it to be very green on the first infusion due to the addition of the matcha, which is mostly washed away during the first brewing. However, the tea remains green for all additional infusions, although a lighter green than the first. This is a great tasting tea with a very unique flavor. I use a lot of leaf and 195 degree water, which better brings out the flavor of the rice without over-brewing the tea.
This genmaicha is excellent and is also very affordable, making it an outstanding value. This tea is a perfect example to use against those who falsely claim that organic tea is inferior. AAA+++

This is the first tea I have ordered from O-cha and it is wonderful! The toasted rice gives it a warming nutty flavor. This is my new favorite Green Tea!

I was i little bit afraid to taste some tea like this one, green tea with roasted rice. But I was very surprising tasting it : flavour is pleasant and cooling.

This is everything I love about Genmaicha. The taste is still strong at the third infusion. Very good balance between roasted and grassy flavors.

I really like this tea. I tend to let it cool down for a little while before I start drinking, since the flavors and softness are more pronounced. The toasted rice isn't upfront, but it does linger nicely. I'm finding myself liking it more and more.

My first time having this tea. Loved the aroma, the puffed rice adds almost a roasted flavour to the tea. Very easy to brew.
