This extraordinary grade of Matcha Gen-mai Cha is seldom seen outside of Japan. The components are of exceptional quality, and produce a harmonious, well-balanced infusion, which is eminently smooth. Toasted rice add a soothing, mellow quality to the complex vegetal flavor.

  • Sensational!

  • Yum! Great Christmas gift! I drink Assams. I knew basically nothing about green teas much less matcha gen-mai cha, so of course I watched several YouTube's to learn how to brew this. I'm so glad I did because brewed in a little pot at the right temp, timed & poured off, that 1st little cup was a revelation. New sensory awakening!
  • One of my favorite teas of all time

  • Love that this is organic. The taste is wonderful--- toasty, warm, and satiating, but refreshing. It's a great substitute for anyone trying to cut down on coffee

  • This is my new favorite green tea. Full body, gorgeous color and a rich great flavor. Gen Mai Cha has always been one of my favorite's but with the Matcha it just takes the cake!

  • Smooth and pleasant tea, but I can't taste toasted rice at all, which is what I'm looking for in Gen-Mai Cha.
  • Wonderful tea

  • Anna – MA – April 10, 2019
  • Bought this tea on a whim and I am not disappointed. It has a vegetal, nutty almost broth consistency/taste to it - which I absolutely love. This cup of tea is now how I start my day, it pairs well with food and is delicious on its own.
  • Nice genmai cha with more green then most

  • Jonathan – SC – February 13, 2019
  • First i've had with the addition of MAtcha, which gives it a nice full Green tea body, it does dimish somewhat the toastyness of the puffed rice that i enjoy so much about genmaicha (reminds me of puffins breakfast cereal).
  • Beyond what you think know of green tea...

  • Susan – MA – January 17, 2019
  • It's perfect. Beautiful, brothy, never bitter (I brew 2-1/2 minutes at 160 degrees). It's a gentle wake-up in the morning, good on the road, sustaining as the afternoon progresses. Delicious at any temperature. Really special. Can't say enough good things about this tea... give it a try!
  • Outstanding

  • Kathryn – OR – January 16, 2019
  • This Matcha Gen-mai Cha is truly one of the best that I've tried. It may be worthwhile to know that I prefer bolder, more robust flavor, and this tea has that and more. Straw, earthy, but also slightly sweet. A fantastic tea that I am enjoying even as I type.
  • Lovely for late morning/early afternoon

  • Mary – VA – March 10, 2018
  • This is hands down my favorite tea and has been my choice in the afternoon for the last year or two. It has a lovely green color when steeped. The taste is a marvelous combination of nutty, toasted, and vegetal. I steep for 2 minutes at 170-175 and it is just perfect.
