247 Tasting Notes
This is one of my favorite teas. The best part is the after taste. I love how the ginseng lingers on your taste buds. It’s such a smooth tea it’s easy to drink at any time. The pre-brewed smell is a little funky.
The version I have is not Joy’s tea brand but I am not sure of who made it cause I can’t find it in their online store (Cooks of Crocus Hill – Goods and Goodies)
Jasmine was my starter tea. It’s easy to drink with honey or without. It also blends well with other teas. This Jasmine tea is mellow and full of Jasmine flavor. I still prefer this one with honey then without though. It’s also good cold. In order to fully appreciate the Jasmine flower flavor I had to let the tea cool down.
Each Genmaicha is different. Every cup has most of the same notes but also has it’s own uniqueness. I’ve tried three different Genmaicha bags and all were a bit different. So far my favorite has been Indigo’s Organic Genmaicha but this one is also quite good. Like all green teas you have to make sure you do not over steep the tea or it will become too bitter.
