drank Genmai Cha by Adagio Teas
19 tasting notes

What the heck? Am I eating a bowl of cereal or drinking a cup of tea? (Not very tasty cereal, at that!) The toasted rice flavor totally dominated the tea. Could it really be as bad as this and still have so many fans? Different strokes for different folks. This one just isn’t my cup of tea. But you know me. I’ll try anything…twice. I’ll let you know if my opinion changes.

I never had Adagio’s Genmaicha, but I had other brands. I loved it the first time because of the toasty rice flavor, but the second and third time was really disgusting to me.

Exactly! I understand people drinking flavored teas, even those that totally mask the natural taste of the base tea. But why would anyone choose THIS flavor?

Ricky

I feel like you have to be me in the mood for this tea, or at least it’s just me. I’m going to revisit it in a month so it’s fresh again. If I were to have it again today I would feel sick.

Samantha

I hated this at first, but now I love a good cup.

Bio

Perpetual tea noob. There’s just too much to know and too many to try. So many teas, so little money! I have definite likes and dislikes. I survived a major heart attack in Feb 2009, so I avoid the higher-caffeinated brews. I’m the happiest married man in human history and a Christian by choice.

I started two websites in 2009 to be used as a fundraiser for churches, ministries, missionaries, and non-profit organizations ( www.ShopOnline2Give.com and www.ShopOnline4Charity.org ). Each organization supported by my sites has their own online shopping page with about 150 popular online stores. Select an organization from the left sidebar and visit their shopping page. I have several major online tea shops on each site (more on “2Give” than on “4Charity” right now). Click on a link, shop ’til you drop, and half the commission from each sale goes to the organization whose shopping page you linked from. The other 50% compensates the considerable time I spend on managing the site and supports my tea habit.

If your ministry or non-profit would like to be included on “ShopOnline” contact me ([email protected]) and we’ll see what we can do. Zero cost to participate. Free money. The more the merrier, the less the scarier.
