drank Genmaicha by Malt-Tea.com
470 tasting notes

Another one from my sampler pack! I let this cold brew probably for longer than I should, but it was so light in color after 12 hours that I just let it sit for about 6 more. Well, no harm done! It’s not too strong, but it’s also not as light as it was. It’s still pretty pale, but doesn’t lack flavor!

However, this is a lighter genmaicha than what I am used to. The green tea taste is stronger and grassy-sweet, with softer backing notes from the roasted rice. Given the strength of the other teas I’ve tried from Malt, I was kind of surprised! It’s not bad, in fact I like having a less toasty genmaicha option since the ones in my cupboard are either very toasty or mixed with matcha and not really an “everyday” drink.

While I am enjoying how refreshing this is, I wonder what a genmaicha-style blend with Malt’s roasted corn or crystal malt would be… I could imagine that being SO good! Toasty corn mixed with green tea, mmmm.

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
