Genmaicha with Matcha

Today was cold and rainy here in Seattle. I made a pot of genmaicha with matcha for my afternoon tea. An unusual choice for me but it really hit the spot.

Genmaicha has less caffeine and it is better to warm the body before going to bed.

Do you like genmaicha that has matcha added? When I first encountered the idea, I thought it was a bit of a gimmick, but I think it can definitely work...adds more of a strong green tea character to the genmaicha, rather than having it be dominated by the toasted rice aroma.
