My sister leaves for Halifax tomorrow, so she and my mom stopped by for an impromptu tea party before the day gets too busy with errands. They requested something green and toasty and, besides Genmaicha, this tea immediately sprang to mind!
My mom commented that it had a nice nutty flavour, while my sister liked how light it was on the “green-ness” (as opposed to a sencha). I like that I can re-steep it and still get another round of tea from the pot. All-in-all, a nice tea party staple. Would pair well with toast, dainties or sandwiches.
