lProduct Description

This blend of roasted green tea, popped rice and toasty apples is a bit of a tea Marmite. Some are addicted to its grassy, savoury taste but it's not for those with a sweet tooth. Don't worry though, Genmaicha fans will absolutely love Bird & Blend's unique twist on the classic Japanese 'popcorn' tea.

Needs more apple!

This one sounded intriguing – genmaicha with apple. I like both of those things, so into my order it went.

This actually came out a bit bitter, which surprises me. It’s not undrinkable, but next time I would shorten the steep to 2 minutes. It has a very toasty flavor from the rice and green tea definitely packs a punch of umami as well. I can just barely taste the apple through the stronger flavors. Really, I would love more apple here.

I do really like genmaicha, but this one isn’t that memorable to me. Tasty though! I prefer B&B’s Bristol Breeze for an apply green tea.

Perfect Green Tea

I’ve been looking for a Green Tea for ages which I actually enjoy drinking and have finally found it . I new family favourite!

*****

My favourite of all the teas!

Lovely; tastes like popcorn sprinkled with cinnamon apples! Its difficult to describe - probably a more acquired taste but I adore the toasty/popcorny notes of a genmaicha but with a genius apple twist. Please do not discontinue this ever.

Toasted Apple Tea

Absolutely amazing! The mellowness of the genmaicha is the first thing you taste with the apple lingering on your tongue after. Amazingly comorting and makes you feel warm and snug whilst snuggled up in the cold weather ☆

Yum ++

Not usually a fan of green tea but this is yum. Nice hint of apple and nutty tones. Highly recommend trying.

Nice solid, satisfying cup of tea

This is a thoroughly satisfying tea. The popped rice gives it lovely depth and every sip produces a wonderful toasted aroma in the back of the palate. Normally I prefer fruitier teas but this blend has a lovely light undertone of apple which will more than satisfy any sweet tooth. I agree with other reviewers; a longer brew brings too much bitterness and toasted flavour overwhelming the green tea but be quick and you'll be rewarded....Read more

tasty

I love genmaicha so the apple is a bonus. Really nice but make sure its only brewed for three minutes gets bitter when left longer but most greens are

Perfect balance but DO NOT OVERBREW!

Really yummy tea. Definitely savoury. I'm normally a fan of sweeter teas but I was very pleasantly surprised with this one. Very well balanced - just be careful to stick to brewing requirements - leave it in too long and it can get a bit of a strong after-tang!
