I just finished off the matcha genmaicha from the unknown brand that I had as an iced tea, and it was absolutely delicious. Wanting more, I scoured my stash to find another. I’m pretty sure this is the only matcha genmaicha I have left, so decided to finish it off as a cold brew.
It’s relatively old, and I didn’t store it all that well, so I wasn’t expecting much, but it’s still quite nice. Mostly the toasty genmai flavor, with just a touch of grassiness. Unfortunately it’s a bit bitter, especially compared to the impeccably smooth blend I just had (wish I knew what it was, because I would repurchase).
Flavors: Bitter, Grass, Toasty
