Prepare plain with 140 degree (not listed on the slide bar) water and whisked immediately.
I could not get this stuff to froth. Maybe it’s the heavy starch in combination with the powder but I’m not really sure why.
There also seems to be a much heavier consistency that isn’t allowing the tea to remain suspended so I feel the need to continue whisking just to get the particles off the bottom. Which isn’t very fun.
The flavor profile is a little more bitter even with the cooler temp water but I’m going to continue to muck around with measurements hoping to find something awesome.
This tea really does taste like toasted rice tea in powder/it’s kinda matcha form which is very neat.
I just have to figure out how to brew this SOB.
Koto Genmaicha Powder
Genmaicha is a blend of Japanese green tea and roasted rice. Our Koto Genmaicha is a custom blend of Uji green tea and premium roasted Niigata brown rice. Enjoy its deep aroma and complex nutty flavor. Yields a vibrant yellow green tea.
Koto Genmaicha Powder is our loose leaf tea ground to the same consistency of our premium matchas. This yields a slightly more intense taste than loose leaf teas. It also provides for instant use and higher nutrition since you are consuming the whole leaf.
This tea is grown exclusively in the Uji region of Japan. The rice is grown exclusively in the Niigata, Japan. There are no preservatives or additives of any kind. Imported directly from Japan to preserve peak freshness.
