912 Tasting Notes
I knew this one would be good, but WOW! Regretting only buying a sample packet now. The rice is a little different here somehow than in other genmaichas, but it blends perfectly with the malty Laoshan black! I’m not detecting as much chocolate as the other reviewers, but I love it anyway. I tried this unsweetened and then sweetened the second half of my cup and I loved it both ways. Roasty caramelly goodness folks!
I can’t remember who sent me this sample in a swap, but thanks whoever it was!!!
It was maybe a month ago and I lost it but just found it again today :)
This is your basic chinese restaurant jasmine tea. Decent, very drinkable, but I have jasmine pearls I enjoy more. If it is really as inexpensive as everyone says, I may have to buy a tin for iced tea making! I’ve actually seen this at my local Asian market so that would be nice and convenient, too.
Apparently this was from my very first Butiki order! I had one tsp left and it got lost at the bottom of the abyss that is my tea drawer. I dug it out this morning and have been enjoying it today. I can’t wait to place my next Butiki order! I’m running out of my favorites :( This one would be wonderful iced all summer long…
