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.
