I have been really impressed thus far with the new Organic line of teas from Kally Tea, so I was looking forward to tasting this Organic Genmaicha Green Tea Blend.
And it’s an excellent Genmaicha. It has all the flavor that I’d expect from a top quality Genmaicha: a Japanese sencha green tea that is both sweet and savory and that produces a soft brothy mouthfeel and the sweet and warm roasty-toasty notes from the toasted brown rice.
I enjoy Genmaicha all year round, but, there’s just something about Genmaicha in the autumn. The toasty flavor of it just fits the season. The warmth and the taste of freshly roasted nuts are very autumnal, and the hints of fresh, leafy sencha evoke thoughts of the summer season that has just flown by.
This is one of the nicest Genmaicha teas that I’ve encountered in a while, and I’m not sure if it’s just that I was in the mood for a delicious, roasty-toasty tea or if it’s that this is just an amazing Genmaicha … but I’m thinking that it’s a little of both! It’s a very cozy, comforting cuppa, and I love that it’s organic!
