Sugimoto America Genmaicha with Matcha

Sugimoto America Genmaicha with MatchaGenmaicha may be a low grade tea, but I’m a big fan of it.

When it has added matcha, I like it even better!

This genmaicha with matcha from Sugimoto America consists of roasted rice, popped rice, green tea leaves and matcha. It’s very pleasant to look at, nice and green.

The tea leaves aren’t as course as bancha leaves. I wonder if it’s sencha?

I can also feel the fresh and vegetal aroma of matcha.

Let’s review it

Sugimoto America Genmaicha with Matcha brewedIn order to review it a consistent manner, I’ll be brewing this tea as a standard genmaicha. That means that I used 4 grams of tea, 120 ml of boiling water, and steeped for 30 seconds.

The nutty aroma of the roasted rice becomes very apparent, and we now have an emerald liquor. It looks great.

Now the final test. I take a sip and feel the gentle taste of the roasted rice along with the deep and savory taste of matcha. The tea leaves add almost no astringency and the bitterness is very light.

As with any genmaicha, it’s very easy to drink.

I also made a second infusion and the taste was just like the first infusion. It’s an overall good tea.
