This is tasty!!! Love it!
and that is saying alot for someone who has a meh affair with green tea. Thank you so much to QuiltGuppy for sharing this lovely tea with me.
Out of all the greens I’ve ever had, Genmaicha has always been a fave, well as much as it can be considering my preferences.
In truth, I really prefer corn tea over most GMs but I think I would take this one over a corn tea any day :)
It’s rich and round, nutty and ricey… and has a most pleasing sweet finish.
As I understand it, traditional GM’s used whatever leaf was leftover after the elite took their share, and since there was a limited supply, the rice was added so that it lasted longer. (correct me if I am wrong here! this is hearsay on my end)
Well, this tea… I am sure it uses a high quality leaf. It’s smooth and lacking any of the regular scratchiness I find in most GMs.
I’m on the third steep and it’s only gotten sweeter! Wow. I am in love…
