The only one of this brand’s line that I don’t like. It has the oddest flavor – I suppose that’s the rice?

Most likely it is the rice :) Japanese green tea is more bitter than Chinese green tea, so they often add toasted rice. The tea is known as genmai and it is an acquired taste :) I’ve tried it, but it’s not a staple of my tea cupboard.

Maybe the ‘Inquiry’ part of the title is supposed to be ‘enquiring’ why the hell they made this tea?!" ;D
