31 Tasting Notes
This was my first Gen Mai Cha, and it took me a little bit to get acquainted with the taste. It kind of tastes like unbuttered popcorn, which it turns out I like somewhat. I put in a little sugar, which I thought might be weird, but I definitely liked the addition.
This is a nice tea, but I wish it had a stronger flavor.
I enjoyed this tea. It smelled almost like licorice before I steeped, but tastes spicy and gingery with a little lemon. It almost has a mint aftertaste; I could see this being a good drink if I wasn’t feeling well.
This didn’t seem like anything special. I could smell the floral scents a little, but it was pretty bland. If I were given it, I’d drink it again, but I wouldn’t seek it out.
The spices are pretty strong, but it still comes off as kind of bland. I prepared it without milk; I felt like if I added milk it would lose the small amount of flavor it had.
I really enjoy this tea with a little soy milk and sweetener. It’s great iced, but I like it hot, too. I don’t really taste the coconut, which is sad as I love coconut, but it’s still an all-around good tea.
The jasmine smell is strong, but the taste is pretty bitter.
