3 Tasting Notes

this is an excellent starter for the early morning. most ppl may think “what, its RICE in there?” and you can answer “indeed, and it tastes brilliant!”. the flavor is complex. yes, it tastes like its toasted, but its also a lil creamy with similarities to butter. the sencha then again gives the tea his body, a bit sweet, a bit grassy, with a touch of bitter substances which btw. are just right for a green tea like a sencha!

you can drink the japan genmaicha with sugar, if you like to. but because its a sencha i personally would discourage you from that idea. even if you like your toast with jam, honey or peanut butter, give this toasted beverage a pure try! ;-)

oh, yes, another thing…
when you use a gaiwan or yixing dishes just try to infuse the genmaicha 2 or even 3 times, it’s worth it!

this tea is classic! strong and fresh in his character. soothing and friendy on rainy sundays. i really hate the word but it’s a “fine” tea, hazy, full bodied, simple in substance but complex in practice. i like to add a lil sugar and milk, but the taste is fantastic when you drink it pure also. In my opinion its the best earl grey tea gschwendner is selling.

i really liked this tea in summer. it was refreshing both hot and cold. the taste is good. the coconut is clearly dominant, but the final note is the grassy flavor of sencha. a nice change that makes it even more necessary to try this tea.
