    Good quality tea. The canister is the perfect container to keep it fresh.

    Perfect, just like a quality Japanese genmaicha!.
    If its not from Australia, I hope the roasted rice is from Japan.

    A solid cup of genmaicha! Toasted nutty notes from the rice, with a sweet almost floral base of green tea. Very tasty, I will definitely be coming back for more 🙂

    The quality of the product is top notch. Opening the packet you can definitely smell the wonderful aroma of the tea leaves coupled with the roasted rice.

    The brew is light and lovely with a wonderful after taste that lingers in your mouth.

    Looking forward to future purchases with Perfect South.

    So glad I could find Perfect South’s Genmaicha to order online – since my usual grocer’s shop no longer seems to stock it – despite my asking.
    Really enjoy a pot of this tea – and have done so for a number of years.

    Ilove the nuttiness of Genmaicha. It is perfect for the colder weather. The quality is once again top notch. Will not be searching for any more providers. Have found my Perfect South.

    Love this stuff and now I do not need to visit a Japanese restaurant in order to have a cup!!

    Beautiful, unique taste – refreshing and satisfying. I find it quite hard to stop at one cup in the afternoon. End up having 2 to 3 into the evening. Another wonderful tea from Perfect South. Thank you!

  12. Dan

    From initial product information, through purchase, delivery and finally brewing – I am entirely sold on Perfect South’s quality.

    The Genmaicha is definitely one for those that like a green with some added “mmmm”

    Good work team Perfect South!
