drank Genmaicha by DAVIDsTEA
270 tasting notes

Day 80 of my 101 days of DAVIDsTEA challenge, and my 100th tea note on Steepster. (Wow!)

10g of this dumped into my Chinese teapot, which is approximately a 4-cupper.

This has a lovely flavour to it. It has a subtle flavou to it that really highlights the rice as well as the tea itself. I found it very relaxing to drink, which is always wonderful. Resteep was lighter on flavour, but not to the point where it wasn’t worth the resteep.
As the tea continued to steep both times, the flavour did intensify. I found that it got slightly bitter as it cooled as well (poured from the pot), but not to the point of it being off-putting.

I’ve had some genmaicha from another company in my cupboard for quite some time, and I think I’ve been brewing it wrong, after making this. I’m certainly going to want to try that as well, making sure it’s done properly to see if it will be just as good and relaxing as this was.
