It is a very interesting green tea. I didn't really like it at first but kept drinking and my the end of my cup I was addicted!

I just tried Genmai Cha for the first time. Being a black tea drinker all my life, I was quite impressed with the taste.

I also bought a Bigelow green tea. It was quite good as well.

I will now incorporate green tea into my daily tea ritual.

YES! genmai -cha always makes me want to eat lots of popcorn. I did it this weekend- popped the corn while waiting for the tea to brew. It was pretty much bliss.
