drank Genmaicha by Murchie's Tea & Coffee
1904 tasting notes

I suppose it isn’t really fair to compare this to last night’s Ryokucha, but I can’t help noticing that this tea lacks depth of flavour. It’s got body and strong savory notes, but it’s very much a one-note tea. There’s a burst of toasted grain flavour and then….nothing. I have to say that even compared to the generic supermarket-bought genmaicha they serve at the sushi bar this looses out. It’s not a bad tea, it’s just that I’ve had better incarnations of it.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
