drank Genmai Cha by Hime
521 tasting notes

I saw this today at my local Chinese store. I had to laugh later when I realized that I had bought 10 oz of this tea! I thought that it said 10g. Not really the same thing. I was very, very cheap at only $3.79 for the 10oz. I also purchased my first Pu-erh! It’s a birds nest shaped toucha that simply says “Yunnan The Toucha.” I really can’t find what brand it is. Maybe someone here would know.
This isn’t a bad genmaicha. It’s nice and roasty. I’m eating an apple with it so it’s all crunchy up in here! lol I think that it’s not my favorite b/c it needs some more green-ness to the profile imo. I think that this would be great for daily drinking; which is why the price tag seems right to me. Next time I’m steeping for 2 min instead of 3.
also followers :)
If anyone would like to try some of this for a trade or otherwise I’d love help consuming this! I have a ton of tea and don’t know if I can make it through this much of one tea. :p
