TEAcipes and Victoria, my very best friend is Korean and we often go to Korean Markets with her. In fact, in my cup right now is a combo of corn, barley and green tea.
BTW, Chip, my Teamaster may have some words of wisdom to add! .
Your best friend is Korean? My husband is Korean!! That is why I have such a strong interest in things Korean.
Pardon my ignorance here, but isn't corn tea its own thing, as in; it doesn't really have tea in it? If you take the grains and add them to green tea it becomes Genmaicha, right?.
Well, I am far from an expert, but yes, corn tea is not tea and can certainly stand alone, but I do like to mix it with other grains. Genmaicha, I believe, is a blend of rice and green tea, not corn and green tea.
Oh thanks for the clarification. I didn't realize Genmaicha was only with rice. I thought it was any grain added to green tea, no wonder I was confused. So there is no real name for what you make up, the varied grains with green tea?
I still want to try corn tea sometime. I have a couple of other Korean friends who like it.

Yeah my husband doesn't like it either.
I have been wanting to go to that big Ranch Market down off Jefferey. Have you been there? Where is Freshia? For baked good we sometimes drive all the way to Kings Hawaiian, LOL. I think we need to compare notes!!
You do know about Mitsuwa, right?
