Genmaicha is a tea that I return to again and again; I love the roasted flavours of the rice with the delicious green. I’ve had some really good Genmaichas, and I’ve had some … not so good ones. This though… beats all. The tea does not turn bitter at all, or at least it didn’t for me – and I played around quite a bit with my water temps and steep times.
Very well balanced, and a great quality of green tea with this one. The roasted rice flavours didn’t dissappear either wich made me happy. Initially, I was slightly saddened when I saw this is my steepster selects box as I already have two other kinds of Genmaicha on the go right now. But I steeped it up anyways – and it blew me away. So glad to try this one, and will likely be on the lookout for more when my stash runs out.
