This is one of my first cups of Teavana tea, and as I’ve never tried a Genmaicha before and was really curious what it would be like, I thought i’d go for it.
Bottom line: I prefer straight green tea, but the toasted rice is definietly a nice touch for a different kind of treat.
The nutty flavour brings out the sweetness of the tea, making it something I could see myself drinking after dinner or perfectly paired with dessert.
And you know those rice crackers? If you absolutely hate those then I wouldn’t suggest this tea. It’s like a wonderful green tea with that sort of rice cracker, nutty flavour with it.
Overall, very smooth, wonderful, and free of extra crud and flavourings, which I love.
