drank Genmai Cha by Adagio Teas
150 tasting notes

Polished off the last of my sample of this today, so it’s time to write a review. A review that can be summed up in one word:


So I definitely like roasty green teas, and this one was great. The popped rice is malty and savory, making this a great dinnertime tea. The green tea base itself is perfectly grassy, and it doesn’t get bitter unless you oversteep. A keeper!

I’ve just recently discovered the world of loose tea and am really enjoying myself. I’m still in SAMPLE EVERYTHING mode, and likely always will be.

I love green teas, chai, and citrus flavors. I don’t mind hibiscus. I will drink a bitter green tea, but won’t drink bitter black tea. I’m working on figuring out which black teas work for me.

I tend to drink my tea without milk or sugar.

I’m using Steepster’s Cupboard function to actually reflect my current tea stock, otherwise I’d never be able to remember what I already have.
