drank Browncoat Genmaicha by 52teas
415 tasting notes

1.25 tablespoons for 375 ml of water

The brewed tea has a note of chocolate in the aroma. Genmaicha scent is at the forefront.

On the sip I’m detecting an out-of-place fruity note. Chocolate flavour is very mild and only present near the end of the sip into the aftertaste. Genmaicha flavour is quite mild. Hint of roasted taste near the end of the sip. There is an odd chlorine-like flavour near the middle of the sip which I think is the result of the mild cocoa and genmaicha mix.

I found that there was a good amount of chocolate-y flavour near the end of the cup with the tea sediment bits that sink to the bottom of the cup.

I almost bought this one when it first came out, but the reviews seem pretty so-so and this is the second mention of chlorine I’ve seen so I guess it’s good I skipped it!

Yeah mine smelled strongly of chlorine. :/

Really hoping that another few weeks fixes everything!
