3688 Tasting Notes
mmmm cold brewed delicious! I needed a break from hot tea so i grabbed this one out of the fridge. I’m getting down to my last of this tea and it’s been a good run. I really like this as a cold beverage. Going to save what i have left for a hot brew so that tonight i can do a final comprision so i know if this should be in my “summer” cupboard or it can be there year round lol
Decided to give this one another run through since it was so tasty. I have to say that I’ll need to share this one with my other half. he’s always complaining about how teas are gross. He doesn’ like the after taste of a lot of teas but i figure that’s just because black teas aren’t his thing :) This really is a delicious cup of happiness.
I’m pretty sure this is the first genmaicha that I’ve tried. I’m also fairly certain that’s what prompted me to order this in sample size sonce verdant started doing that. I’m not a huge fan of lighter teas, so i’m always hesitant on making larger purchases of those types of tea.
On to the tea! The scent on opening the tea is lovely. Once brewed, it smells like popcorn to me. Fresh wonderful popcorn that isn’t found in movie theatres…the kind my parents used to make in a pot on the oven. Though there’s a hint of “sweet” in the scent as well as it lingers.
The tea is a lovely light yellow colour.
The taste… this is a lovely tea which i’m sure i’m going to get distracted with as I work. Theres a sweet taste…the taste of corn, underlying hints of a vegetal taste but super light. Hmmmm i think i’m going to go focus on this tea…though i have to say the aroma is mkaing me hungry. While i’m not a fan of a lot of lighter teas….I’d order this one again. This is really quite delightful!
