I got this as a sample from The Persimmon Tree Tea. I LOVE genmaicha! This is a really nice one. Its roasty and toasty and really forgiving!
I knew I was using too hot of water temp but I was too impatient to wait for it to cool down so just used the 195 degree water out of my Zojiroushi. (sp?) letting it steep for a good 5 minutes. I really need a nap and am in one of those moods where if I over steeped or didn’t get the water temp right so be it. Surprisingly this turned out really nice!
It does not taste over steeped or as if I burnt it!
Thank you genmaicha for being so kind today!
