Hello delicious. This is my first genmaicha which came in the Green Tea for novices pack. And what an incredibly generous pack that is. I brewed it as per directions. Boiling water, first infusion 30 seconds, second infusion 15 (although that felt backwards, is one not supposed to increase the steep time per infusion?).

This smells just like rice cakes – and this is a good thing. It tastes sweet and vegetal. Great tea for the evening, no astringency or bitter notes. I was not able to discern what flavor the Matcha added as I have never had Matcha or genmaicha before.

Greetings!

I am originally from Argentina and grew up drinking mate and cafe con leche. I was gifted an iron cast tea pot, which started this craziness.
Currently in graduate school, most of my time is spent trying to avoid doing work and finding good shows/movies on Netflix.
