Thanks to Ninavampi for the sample!!
This was… interesting. Hot, it didn’t taste like much so I kept the bag in a little too long, hoping to eke some flavour out. It got a tad bitter, but not overly so. Apparently it’s a Genmaicha? something faintly ricey going on. Hmmm. Now that I think about it, the bag did have bits of white in it. Must have been the kernels!
Anyhow, I had another tea on the go as well, so this was cooler than I normally like by the time I go to my cuppa.
However, it changed profiles as it chilled! Somehow, it became more floral than any Genmaicha I’ve ever had. Not bad!!
Of course, this now means I inadvertently had two Gens in one day. shrugs
On a side note, I am off to organize my cupboard! yay! this is gonna take awhile.
