3 Tasting Notes
Please do not that i may have inadvertently exposed the tea by keepin it in the provided plastic bag that was frayed for over a week.
Light golden brown, lighter than the mao feng. Very light green tea nose too and abundantly toasted rice smelling. The initial flavor is of toasted rice, sweet! Followed by a very light green tea flavor with subtle body. There is a lingering taste that’s grassy and a touch astringent.
Ive had a more balanced genmaicha with a $0.20 tea. This one unfortunately is too light for me. I prefer the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf genmaicha for the price
Flavors: Toasted Rice
Not your typical green tea at all. Beautiful light gold color, fresh grassy yet spicy nose. I was pleasantly surprised by the minimal astringency and the bright, fruity taste of peaches and apples. There is a light body but a lingering finish that reveals its green tea flavor. Overall a surprisingly delightful blend that will surely be a regular in my cupboard!
Flavors: Apple, Fruity, Peach
A plummy novelty! Deep, natural red color with abundant cherry scent. Starts of with abundant cherry flavour, sharp and tart and nothing artificial. The lingering notes reveal the hibiscus base first and then a faint hint of cinammon. I do tastte some ginger and lemongrass when i pay more attention.
It’s important for one to use boiling fresh water. I’ve used reboiled and the taste is very flat and all cherries!
A nice drink but because of the lack of balance in taste (mostly cherries) there won’t be anymore in my cupboard and my score will be an average 3. But for fruity drink lovers this could be a delicious iced drink if you could properly steep that hisbiscus taste.
Flavors: Cherry, Cinnamon, Ginger, Hibiscus, Lemongrass
