drank Browncoat Genmaicha by 52teas
283 tasting notes

Firefly! This was my first order from 52 teas :)

I tried it soon after I got it and didn’t like it, there was a sharp sort of chemically smell and I didn’t like the taste at all but after reading some, I decided to let the bag sit a bit and try again later.

So on this second try, the weird smell has gone away and the taste is a nice roasted, toasted rice and hint of chocolate. It tastes like what I imagined it to be from the description so I’m very pleased.

Hello! I am loving reading tasting notes and discovering a whole world of teas. My favorite type is definitely black teas. I prefer flavored, dessert types. I love sample sizes so I can try a little of each and have had fun swaps :). My bank account has been crying since I found steepster but I’m trying to exercise (find) some restraint and it helps that I know I’m not alone lol.
