Matcha-Iri-Genmaicha vs. Genmaicha, and best one/place to get it? (Brown rice tea)

Cinnamon | Jun 6, 2009 09:29 PM

I've had some gorgeously toasty genmaicha at a high-end restaurant, and have a semi-decent bag brand of it now (sencha green tea and toasted rice), but was in a Japanese shop today and saw they had a $12 small pack with matcha powder. That, I understand, is also called Matcha-Iri-Genmaicha.

So, I don't recall what matcha tastes like really, but I'd like to get the most wonderful, flavorful and toasty brown rice tea I can find within some budgetary sanity. My questions are:

Is the variety with matcha WAY tastier than the other?

What's a good price range for whatever you're recommending?

Where can I buy it online or in L.A.?

Thank you.
