          Great value!

          Posted by Sarah on Mar 19th 2017

          Gen Mai Cha is one of my go-to's so seeing this was significantly cheaper than my typical loose leaf brand I had to give it a try. Being a third of the price I'm used to I questioned if it would be as good but it's everything I expect from a gen mai cha - nutty, warm, bold, smooth. What a wonderful find!

          Earthy, smooth, and nutty

          Gen Mai Cha is an acquired taste. Two Leaves has a great loose leaf of this sencha tea. I think the sweetness even has hints of vanilla or tapioca. I brew mine for 2.5 minutes.

          Nutty, toasted Finish

          Posted by Lindsay on Aug 8th 2013

          This is probably my favorite tea. This gem mai cha is truly the best I've tasted. Perfect green tea with a nutty, toasted finish. YUM!

          Pleasantly Surprised

          It sounds really weird, having rice in your tea, and I was hesitant to try it, but it's actually pretty good. If you've ever tried rice drinks before, imagine something like that.

          Comforting

          Posted by Stefanie on Aug 8th 2013

          I love this tea. The toasty rice adds an extra element that I find really comforting, substantial and tasty. Makes me savor every sip. Definitely worth a try if you've never had it before.

          Try it Iced

          Posted by Molly on Aug 8th 2013

          I love this Gen Mai Cha Tea. I bought the sample pack so I have tried several teas. I was so surprised when I first took a sip. I drink it iced! Yum.....So refreshing and smooth and nutty. So glad I had the sample to try...I'll order a box of it today. Molly

          Weak

          Posted by Radical on Aug 8th 2013

          I love genmaicha in general but this is weak, I brewed it for 10 minutes and it still tasted like water with a faint hint of green tea. Definitely not worth it :(
