I’m a fan of genmaicha, and I had high hopes for this one based on all the rave reviews on here. I do like it, it is sweeter than straight genmaicha, but is it marshmallow? Almost, or at least that’s how I feel. I don’t think this is quite marshmallow enough for me. Or maybe it’s my uneducated palate that can’t quite pick it out. Either way, I’m happy to have tried it. Thanks JackieT for sending me this sample.
Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha
Had some extra genmaicha (and a little bit of uji (matcha mixed with-) genmaicha that we blended together to create this awesome blend. Unfortunately, we didn’t have enough of anything to make it a tea of the week, so here’s a bonus blend (VERY LIMITED EDITION) for this week.
We’ve blended genmaicha (Japanese sencha (I got it before the earthquake, so no worries) blended with toasted rice) with mini marshmallows and natural flavors. This blend is going to go FAST, and we won’t be able to blend any more for a while, if we ever do, so DO NOT drag your feet about this one.
