I brewed this at 180 degrees using short intervals. It smelled very roasty, like a genmaicha. The best steeps were between 2 and 3 minutes. Shorter steeps didn’t have enough flavor, and longer steeps had a sharp taste I didn’t like. But in the goldilocks range, the tea had a pleasant aroma and flavor. I didn’t taste much past the roasty rice notes, but I’m into that so it was fine with me!
