I regret that I don't have my own photo for this review. I should! Heaven knows I have sipped my fair share of this tea. (I brew at ~190 degrees for about 2 minutes.) But I don't have any on had at this moment...and I want to move along in the book, so here's a shot from wikipedia.
In my opinion, this tea is a fun one, and a great one for new green tea drinkers. I say that because of the inclusion of toasted brown rice, which gives the tea a nutty, gentle flavor that balances the stronger bancha (or sometimes sencha) green.
From Harney's website: "Once considered a cheap peasant beverage, Genmaicha has recently come into vogue among Japanese urban elite and in the United States as a health drink."
If you drink this tea, what do you like about it?
