drank Malted Genmaicha by 52teas
23 tasting notes

Tried this one again at a lower steeping temperature. Was a little better, but husband still refused to drink it as it didn’t help the smell. I did manage to drink about 1/4 a mug of this before I decided to throw in the towel. I always tell my kids “you have to try it before you say you don’t like it”. Well, I did. I don’t like it. Even a little. Suppose they can’t all be winners, eh?

Preparation
165 °F / 73 °C 3 min, 15 sec
Cofftea

If you don’t mind Starla, may I offer a suggestion for alternative steeping parameters? I’m not sure how it’ll work considering it’s a flavored gen mai cha, but the parameters I use (thanks to Den’s Tea) is tsp per 8oz of boiling water steeped for 30 sec. I do tend to use just below boiling water though because I don’t want to kill all the wonderful health benefits. I hope this gives you a better cuppa:)

As I haven’t tossed this tea yet, I suppose I could give that method a try. I do hate to waste tea. :) Thank you!

Cofftea

Oops that’s supposed to be 1tsp. Even if it doesn’t work, don’t toss it. Many of us are up for a tea swap most of the time:)
