1064 Tasting Notes
WHOA this tisane is different! The smell of the steeped cup is exactly like a cinnamon roll. Warm cinnamon under sweet sticky vanilla frosting! I just want to keep sniffing it, lol. It tastes nutty, with a warm subtle cinnamon and a hint of vanilla. I’ve always been curious about this tea, but I didn’t expect to enjoy it this much! It’s definitely not something I’d drink very often, but it might be a nice winter evening treat.
Thanks so much to Tealizzy for the sample! :)
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.
