technically i guess this is ‘genmaicha’ (japanese green + rice), dont know if this is japanese green tea.

Method: In cold water, 20minutes,

Taste: tea is very nice in flavor, tastes like the toasty barley tea with a bit more something (probably because…. its rice and tea… not barley)/ i barely detected any green tea flavor…

keep? NO. –> pick Genmaicha from Yamamotoyama.

  1. it is like genmaicha. that is simple and clear thinking for other country. but (korean) green tea with brown rice is different from (japanese) genmaica. two country have different green tea category. for example genmaich have more blended source. and more nokchawon have a category which is called “green tea with grains”. this product is a sort of green tea with grain.
