drank Genmaicha by DAVIDsTEA
83 tasting notes

Genmaicha was one of my go to teas for years and years until I discovered DAVIDsTEA. I used to purchase my genmaicha from the asian grocery stores (250g for $6-7) and I didn’t think it tasted any different than the DAVIDsTEA version. The only big difference between the two is that the grocery store version contains twigs and branches from the tea plant while DAVIDsTEA doesn’t.

The look and taste of the two are very similar. When steeped, the tea is a light green colour…almost yellow. The taste is similar to freshly popped popcorn (without the butter of course!). It’s still a go to if I want a straight tea.

An ex-Engineer who loves anything health and fitness related. I started my tea journey ever since I was young—because tea is very important in my culture. I only knew of two kinds: green and black.

When I was introduced to DAVIDsTEA, my eyes opened to a variety of tea. Since visiting them, I became hooked.

Now I incorporate tea into my daily lifestyle for ultra health benefits!
