It’s still cooling off before I actually take a sip, but so far it is smelling like your general genmaicha tea. The liquor is a pale yellowy green. I could see the cocoa in the dry mix, but I could not smell it. I’m gonna see what it is like without any sugar first, since I can sometimes drink genmaicha plain, though I will likely add a spoon (or partial spoon) as I usually find adding sugar brings out certain flavours not detectable alone. Gonna go back to my backlogs while it continues to cool off more…I’ll come back in a bit when I’ve tried it. but I love genmaicha, so there’s little reason for me to not like this unless I fudged on the steeping side of things.
I think I fudged up the steeping…this tastes like regular genmaicha to me. I’m getting no chocolate. I love genmaicha, so I am not worried, but I was hoping for that Nestle Crunch flavour. Maybe next time. I’m beginning to wonder if my buds are off. I might have to try a tried and true fave and see what happens.
