According to Choice's Website:
Satisfy your senses with this gratifying cup that pays homage to one of Japan's ancient agricultural traditions. Genmaicha pairs spring-harvested green tea with toasted brown rice for a cup that's fresh and delicately balanced. It's a simple, healthy pleasure sure to clear the mind and nourish the soul.
Genmaicha is one of those teas you can drink morning after morning without getting tired of it. It's made of toasted brown rice and green tea leaves. The brown rice gives it a very baked toasted taste. The best way I could describe it is if you've got a whiff of fried white rice and it's got that slightly burnt rice scent. Imagine that scent toned down a bit, add some green tea, and you've got this tea.
Pricing and Availability: 4/5
Available at your local organic grocery store or Whole Foods. Sometimes Trader Joes. Also available online here. I took off a point because it isn't really easily available where I live. The price varies from $5.00 - $6.00.
Overall this is a great tea if you're looking to venture outside your regular green or black tea. Genmaicha is usually a safe bet that you may like. And with Choice's affordable price, it makes it easy to try Genmaicha.
