drank Genmaicha by Harney & Sons
1904 tasting notes

I ordered this partially so that I could compare it to the genmaicha I got from Murchie’s. This tea smell very distinctly of popcorn – just popcorn, not burnt-smelling this time. The taste is surprisingly smooth and mild, and I’m barely getting any grassiness at all from the green tea base. But there’s a sweetness to the flavour that was lacking in the Murchie’s tea.

It lacks the body and the intense savory quality of other genmaichas, but I’ll have a better idea of that after I give it a longer steeping time.

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.
