drank Laoshan Genmaicha by Verdant Tea
2367 tasting notes

Thank you Dexter3657 for sending this my way. I am always happy to try a genmaicha and today this tea is christening my brand new mason jar. I am enjoying 24 oz of roasty-toasty goodness. This one is grassier than the others I have had but I still think it is nice. I was a little disappointed though because I, for some reason, though this was a genmaicha with Laoshan Black as a base. Nonetheless, it is still enjoyable and I am glad I am getting to try it.

Flavors: Grass

Have you not tried the Loashan chocolate Genmaicha?

VariaTEA

I did but it had oolong in it for reasons that are unknown to me.

That’s how Verdant decided to blend it? That’s the only one I know of that has Loashan Black in it….

VariaTEA

Oh well. This is still very good. So thank you for sharing :)

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
