I have enjoyed many teas from Joy's Teaspoon, and this Genmaicha is no exception!

I was first introduced to Genmaicha at a Sushi restaurant. I was surprised how perfectly this light, green tea, with a roasted rice flavor, went with the savory sushi!

So, when I had a chance to try some from Joy's Teaspoon I was excited. My expectations were met!

This Genmaicha is made with Bancha tea, which is Japanese green tea. It is from the same plant as Sencha, but is picked later and so considered a lower quality, market grade tea. I love the sweet taste of a Sencha, and found this to be lighter than Sencha and not quite as sweet. The only other difference I noticed is that there was more dust in my package, and therefore more tea dust in the bottom of the cup.

However, the taste is amazing. So smooth and light with that lovely roasted rice taste! I served it to my whole family one day when we were together celebrating and eating sushi. Everyone loved it and I was amazed. My family does not generally drink green tea, but after the first taste, everyone was asking for more!

I was able to steep this tea up to four times and still get a great tasting liquor. I had the tea kettle going all afternoon to keep everyones cup filled with Joy's Teaspoon Genmaicha.
