I have been drinking Genmaicha green tea ever since I lived in Japan 1978-1982. It keeps me healthy and wards off colds and sore throats during the cold and flu season. I cannot believe they are out of the 50 sachet bags. Hope it becomes available soon!
What's not to like about this tea? It certainly is a great starter for people wanting to get into Japanese tea drinking, as matcha powders can be bitter to newcomers. With it's nutty flavor and short seeping time, it's light, enjoyable, and overall a treat.
I have used Genmaicha tea for years as a base stock for my Chicken and Rice Soup...what an amazing flavor it lends to this soup! In fact I have almost converted all of my chicken stock recipes/soup bases to contain all or at least a mixture of 1/2 Genmaicha tea and 1/2 stock. Try it, you won't be disappointed! And the health benefits...a bonus!
