drank Genmaicha by Imperial Tea Garden
911 tasting notes

As a general rule, I don’t find genmaicha all that impressive. Dunno why, it just doesn’t hit all the right buttons with me. The exception to this is Samovar’s Ryokucha, which yeah, I kind of adore (and am out of right now, which is really horrible). So I wasn’t expecting to get into this gemaicha. But apparently I was wrong. This is actually very tasty and makes me think of my much loved Ryokucha, particularly because it has a similarly milky flavor. This one is a little thinner feeling (no matcha in this one) and perhaps has a bit more toasted rice flavor but it is still remarkably smooth and the flavors mesh really delightfully. Quite a nummy cup! Thanks TeaEqualsBliss!

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.

1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
