    Outstanding value in a very high quality, pure Sencha experience. I’ve been trying various Sencha brands lately in search of a satisfying organic Sencha at a reasonable price. I’m happy to report that I found it today with my first delivery of SENBIRD TEA’s Organic Sencha Green Tea. I opened it immediately and brewed it following package directions at 75C for 1.5 minutes using spring water in a gaiwan. I could tell right away by both appearance and aroma that this was not just another mediocre Japanese tea in a fancy package. It was like experiencing the essence of a fine ceremonial matcha – excellent balance between umami fragrance, sweet fresh undercurrents of marigold, and a powerful centering energy experience. A completely unexpected level of quality for the price. Highly recommended!

    My husband loves Genmaicha tea but only drinks it from the cheap tea bags. He also doesn’t like matcha but I like matcha and read about the health benefits. I couldn’t get him to switch to matcha. Then I found this blend. It is PERFECT! I can’t believe how fresh it tastes. And I can’t believe my husband actually likes it too. It’s the best of both worlds and it will be hard to go back to drinking tea bags!

    I love the smell of Genmaicha. It’s nice to drink with a meal or if I’m feeling hungry at night. Sometimes I steep it for a long time so that it’s stronger. It’s also very easy to brew and doesn’t require as much prep as Gyokuro, so it’s good for everyday when I’m busy. I will be reordering when it’s gone. I’m pleased that this brand has a refill policy!

    The tea has surprisingly rich flavor, better than other cheaper non-organic tea. The color of the liquid is darker than other brands I have tried. That may explain the richness of the flavor.

    I will definitely buy this again.

    I drink 2 cups of this tea in the morning, and before I knew it, the hundred grams of Genmaicha in the sealed jar have disappeared. The mellow, sweet, and chlorophyll laden is just what I need in the morning. It reminds me of the many teas I drank when I traveled to Kyoto three times a year.

    I’m glad I bought this! Was a little hesitant due to the price, but I took a chance since it was organic. The quality, taste and freshness are a thumbs up and I love the fact that this Genmaicha has the little white popped brown rice (looks like tiny popcorn), which I wish they added more of. It gives it a more roasted flavor.

    I like the taste of a well-balanced flavor of both green tea and roasted rice. They are neither too strong nor too weak and are just right for me. The tea looks green and clear, and there are barely twigs mixed in with tea leaves.

    Absolutely delicious Genmaicha! I have always loved organic green tea with toasted brown rice and was looking for a new one to try. Based on the reviews I decided to try it. So glad I did, it’s very smooth, fresh, and well balanced. I also bought the best tea infuser ever, “OXO BREW Twisting Tea Ball Infuser” to go with my new tea. This tea is pricey, but worth it because it’s so good!

    I gave loose leaf tea a try, after drinking tea from tea bags all my life. I thought it might be a little complicated to prepare, but Senbird’s packaging was pretty informative with how much tea to use and how hot the water should be. The tea smelled so good in the tin, and drinking it was quite relaxing. The heads up on the caffeine level on the packaging was a nice touch, too.

    Price is reasonable considering it’s Organic tea from a small family owned farm in Japan. I was specifically looking for green tea from Japan. I can tell the quality is fresh and authentic but I wasn’t blown away by the taste. I ended up steeping the tea for a few minutes longer than suggested.

    I purchased the Genmaicha. I use a heaping teaspoon and let it brew 2 minutes, instead of the recommended 1½. It’s has very well balanced flavors with vegetal, umami flavors and a delicious sort of sweet, roast-y flavor. So nice on a cool morning. Nice packaging too.

    I was recently introduced to genmaicha tea via a subscription service I purchased for my parents. While they weren’t thrilled by the taste, I Googled it and found it has amazing health benefits so I decided to purchase some for myself in hopes of minimizing my coffee intake. This tea is more delicate than the one I’d previously tried which makes it easy to drink. The flavor isn’t as strong but it’s good. I honestly don’t have much to compare it to because I’ve only tried one other brand but I will continue ordering it.

    Definitely a delicious and high-quality genmaicha tea… the roasted rice flavor is in good balance with the tea. It brews to a pretty jade color due to the matcha as well. Be sure to use boiled water that’s cooled to around 180F …. hotter than that makes sencha very bitter.

    This is normally more than I would pay for tea since I’m used to the cheap pre-made tea bags but this genmaicha is worth it! I found some empty tea bags and I prefill it for convenience. I don’t think I will ever stop drinking this tea! Great quality, great taste, and great health benefits!! A MUST-TRY!

    Excellent Genmaicha flavor! It is really nostalgic for me because I used to drink tea just like it at my favorite Japanese restaurant when I was a kid. It brought me right back to fond memories.

    I like the tin, I like that you can get refills for the tin that don’t cost as much, I like the selection of teas they offer on their website. It’s just not the tea I had in Korea that I was hoping it would be like.

    I was looking for a low-caffeine tea and found this. This is a mixture of roasted grains-brown rice, green tea leaves, and matcha powder. I would say the flavor is well-rounded and has good flavor. I’ve tried other Genmaicha teas (Yamamoto to name one), which are good but don’t have matcha powder included. Not sure if the flavor of this senbird brand is more pronounced because of the addition of matcha, but I’d be interested in trying their tea leaves by themselves. Overall, I’d repurchased- please note although this review is honest, I was directed here to get a free refill from the company in exchange for a review. They have a recycling program as well, where you get 10% off your purchase if you purchase a refill. This encourages buyers to keep their tin can.

    I’m not good at describing flavors especially since I usually like my teas sweet. But this Genmaicha is really good, especially for when I first wake up. It’s flavor is very easy to get used to if you don’t drank green tea often, it should easily turn into your favorite. Genmaicha is good if you want something to help you slowly wake up but not have the coffee jitters.

    I have been craving this genmaicha tea since I first tasted it in Asia many years ago. I took a chance and purchased this on Amazon and am so glad I did. I drink this at work and my coworkers are also hooked! Even without a tea leaf strainer, if you let it sit for awhile, eventually all the leaves sink to the bottom and only the delicious brown rice remains at the top. It is a daily treat that I look forward to!

    Excellent tea

    We really like Genmacha (Genmaicha) tea for the toasted rice flavor. This is a good choice and something of a bargain when price shopping. The tin a right-sized tin that looks amazing on the counter and provides a good seal to keep flavor in. Flavor-wise, it has that toasted rice flavor, but the green tea seemed a tad overpowering. Would I order it again? Sure. Is it my favorite? No. I’m sure this is a personal preference, and the tea is good.
