hey hey this is one of those teas that i’d see posted and was continuously curious about.
also the Browncoat Genmaicha was on my curious list too (because of reasons), and they are basically the same tea it seems.
i mean, genmaicha is such a distinct flavor. (once at a local bar that has good tea, the server gal said genmaicha was “really gross” and then i said “i’ll have a cup of that!”. we laughed.)
this tea was really mild though. kinda too mild.
a lumpy pillow. not even the genmaicha part was especially toasty.
BUT yes i have bad sinuses. delicate flavors don’t do great with me.
perhaps my sister will do better. she usually likes genmaicha even more than me.
thanks thank thanks to moraiwe for this sample.
i say thanks all the time in all my notes. to the people who swap with me.
but usually the thanks doesn’t feel like enough.
i’ve been having some really great experiences with tea swaps lately. just, ya know, when the swappers sync up in this great balance and understanding.
and each person gets to feel equal parts enthusiastically generous and deeply grateful. perfect tea living!
