Genmai Cha

I actually had my first sampling of this tea a few days ago. What's more, I used to have a rather generous quantity of same in a lovely airtight canister, but I've long since exhausted that stash. Anyway...

This version, gotten from the same Perrenial Tea Room, is not a disappointment. I guess you could call genmai cha the vanilla of green teas. Actually, chocolate is probably closer to the mark. Genmai cha is made with green tea and roasted rice. One cup is like having a little snack. It's a bit like drinking one of those thick dark beers that substitute for a meal.
