75
drank Genmaicha by Teas.com.au
265 tasting notes

I first had Genmaicha years ago when I was very new to green tea. The person who introduced me to it didn’t brew it properly and, of course, I didn’t like it. This time I’ve used water at 77C and steeped it for two and a half minutes, and it’s much, much better. It produces the typical light yellow brew of a Japanese green, and I really like the slightly nutty taste. I’m not so crazy about the smell, which reminds me of slightly burnt toasted breakfast cereal.
