Japan Genmaicha Tea
Genmaicha, a Japanese specialty, means "brown rice tea." Green tea is blended with roasted, partially puffed rice giving it a toasty flavor. The quality of Genmaicha varies widely depending on the base tea used. While most Genmaicha sold in this country is based on larger leaf Bancha, this specific grade consists of a blend of Sencha and fine Bancha making it very fragrant and aromatic. Use 1 heaping teaspoon per cup; heat fresh, cold water until steam rises (180 degrees F); let steep for 1-2 min.

This genmaicha is excellent - a little touch of savory with the rice, with the acridity of the green. It's really nice hot and comforting.
[Personal review] My favorite green.

I ordered this first as a sample and have been ordering it regularly since. I love the warm toasty aroma of the rice. It really does hit the spot when I want a more savory tea.
