drank Matcha Kirara Rice by Lupicia
47 tasting notes

Disclaimer: this is my first time trying any sort of genmaicha.

I was watching a hockey game and Michigan was on a power play, so I ended up steeping this a little too long, for three whole minutes. I suggest about half of that time, but for being oversteeped, it wasn’t too bitter. Because Lupicia listed this as one of the tea latte possibilities, I was expecting something somewhat sweet esp. with matcha, but it was more like a comforting food type of drink. Reminds me of asian snacks and sesame oil. Not my favorite, but would be a good mealtime tea. So, I wonder how it stands up to milk and sugar?

Added: Now I see that Lupicia suggests mere thirty seconds. No wonder I’m tasting some bitterness. Since I have a whole 2oz bag, I will try it properly next time. Keeping the rating rather neutral for now…
