We blend powdered green Matcha into our Genmaicha. It has been a hit at our tasting room with a brilliant green liquor and toasted notes.

Mmm! The roasty-toasty character of Genmaicha just screams AUTUMN to me, and I love the added sweetness of the Matcha in this blend.
The flavor is light yet comforting. It’s the kind of tea that you like to have with you when you’re curling up under a warm, fluffy blanket. The toasted nut flavor speaks of fires roaring in the fireplace and roasting nuts over the open flame.
But beneath it all is a delicious freshness that whispers reminders of spring. The gentle sweetness of the green teas that are just barely vegetative in the presence of the the stronger nutty and toasty notes.
This is really good (and very refreshing!) served as an iced tea, although I do prefer it hot, if for no other reason than the comfort factor. It’s one of those teas that is wonderful to enjoy no matter the season. That’s what I love most about a Matcha infused Genmaicha like this Matcha iri Genmaicha from Harney & Sons. It’s simple and delicious … like tea’s answer to your favorite comfort food.
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
