Rishi Genmai Green 100% Premium Tea Powder

Rishi contacted me through my personal tea blog and sent me samples of their new Natural Leaf Powder line. I was interested to see how the taste of genmai would carry through to this new format. Genmai is green tea with roasted rice added to it. I took a couple of sips from my bottle first so that it would be a little easier to mix. The powder was a bit clumpy but dissolved very quickly with a few shakes.

The tea itself was darker than the oolong that I had tried previously. I wasn’t expecting this to be as good as a loose leaf tea and it didn’t quite get there but it was not bad by any stretch of the imagination. It was refreshingly mild and sweet with just a hint of the roasted flavor from the rice. I love the fact that these powders are unsweetened.
