I’ve had this tea first thing in the morning for the last week. And it’s a very tasty genmai cha. When I make it straight I don’t detect much matcha (which is what I want first thing the AM). To make it perfect, I add a 1/2 tsp of the culinary tea matcha powder. When it’s time to resteep I just add a little more matcha. I think this is the way to go with the genmais + matcha. I’ve found that very few of the genmai+matcha have enough matcha for my taste. The only brands that have enough matcha from the get go are american tea room and rishi. They actually look like the picture listed for this tea. Nonetheless, this is still a good tea. With altering, super good.
