I’ve never had bamboo in tea before…so when I saw this while browsing the tea section of Steepster, I knew I had to try it. Placed an order for samples, and here it is!
It’s…okay. I can taste the Genmaicha prominently, and it overpowers the other flavors quite a bit. If I try, I get a bit of ginger and cardamom. There’s a fruit-ish aftertaste to it that’s more mango & papaya than pineapple. I’m not 100% sure I’m a fan of genmaicha, and I can’t help but think this blend would be better off without it.
