Free sample that I got from Lupicia the last time I was at the store. This is a mesh pyramid teabag.
So, it’s a genmaicha… I generally like genmaichas but I can’t say I adore them or crave them very often. This is sweeter than some other varieties I have tried. I am definitely enjoying the savory, nutty flavor of the toasted rice. The green tea is a bit seaweedy and vegetal but overall, fairly mild. This is good stuff! I do have almost a whole package of genmaicha from Maeda-en I need to finish off or pitch it in the New Year… so I won’t be buying any more soon!
