drank Genmaicha by DAVIDsTEA
2272 tasting notes

I have only had genmaicha once or twice. One was a flavored version by Nina’s called Nina’s Japon and it was excellent. I think I had one other that was bagged and I didn’t care for it.

I made this one a bit strong simply because there s a little more leaf than needed but not enough for another serving. Four of us drank it. Two didn’t like it, one said it was okay, and I really enjoyed it – quite a bit.

Maybe it was because I overleafed, but the aroma was pure burnt popcorn kernels. The tea was sweet and smooth’ though, and I loved the roastiness.

Really good stuff and a bit of a departure from what I usually drink so it was a nice switch up. Steeped a rounded tablespoon in 20 ounces water at 175F for three minutes.

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about eight years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
