drank Genmaicha by Kusmi Tea
408 tasting notes

First time I met this tea, I burned my tongue ! It was in a big department store in Paris where Kusmi has a corner.
The salesmen always prepare a large volume of one tea and offer it to the potential clients around.
This is a very kind and marketed attention …but they should have warned that it was incredibly hot :)
Anyway I found this tea quite good as soon as my taste buds went out of a burning coma.

I have a small tin of it and had the chance to prepare it home.
This is a very pleasant but quite light Genmaicha.
Not my favourite one but rice and popcorn are really present and there is absolutely not bitterness.

Nice to begin with Genmaicha

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Taiwan tea Crafts, Teavivre, Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard (or very often ! )

94 to 90 : Excellent tea

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even quite nice, why not having it sometimes, but well,it’s not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this thing supposed to be tea ?!?!?
