It’s been a real scorcher today but I just woke up from a nap (hello, vacation!) and I needed something to perk me up.
Genmaichas usually don’t impress me a lot but I like the popped corn in this one, which is something that you don’t always see. Definitely vegetal with a great, savory and brothy quality. It almost reminds me of soup. I have some genmaicha at home already so I doubt I will need to buy anymore soon, but I should probably steal this from my Dad who will never drink it. :-P
Tomorrow I am back home to chilly San Francisco and to my regular tea collection.
