tea review: genmaicha brown rice tea from obubu tea

I am a big fan of genmaicha tea – it smells strong, sweet, earthy and a lot like popcorn, that’s right, popcorn. When it comes to tea reviews, I’m of the same school of though as Nicole from Tea For Me Please, I can’t write eloquent essays describing the virtues of one type of tea. I’m not one to methodically time my tea steepings, or measure the temperature of the water – but I know what I like and I love how with a tea like this one you can have pot after pot and they are all wonderful, the taste mellows and changes with each one, and the popcorn scent changes. This is one tea I will absolutely buy again, it’s amazing.

This genmaicha is made from sweet mochi brown rice, grown in Japan; and Obubu’s Sencha of the Autumn Moon (which you can also get as a stand-alone tea).  One thing I really like about tea info on the Obubu website is that they tell you all sorts of stuff about the tea you’re drinking.  For example this one was cultivated on the open air (uncovered rather than covered) it was lightly steamed during it’s processing and that the leaves are a little too tough to eat after your steeping (unlike some other teas which are delicious to eat!).
