2 Tasting Notes


One of my favorite teas, if not the favorite tea. Definitely my favorite genmaicha. I love the vegetal and toasty notes I get from it. One of the most mellow and best tasting genmaichas I’ve ever had. I always have to make a full pot of this and it still never seems to last long. Just make sure you follow the directions and use good water. I’ve tried making it in a Mr. Coffee Iced Tea Maker :( It was a waste of wonderful tea. It turned out very bitter and almost undrinkable. I also used hard tap water right after moving from one home where I had wonderful tap water for making tea to a new house. When people ask me if water makes a difference I say, “Absolutely!” This tea definitely did not taste as good with the new hard water as it does with good, soft tap water or filtered water.

A little bitter and you can’t really taste the green tea in it. I usually have to add sugar, then it ends up being a little sweet. Not my favorite tea.
