Thanks so much for sharing your creation, KittyLovesTea ! As a rule green tea isn’t really my favourite, and genmaicha has always kinda confused me, but this is one that I really enjoyed to the end! Including this last cup, which I have been hoarding for the best part of four years… It’s finally time to let go of that one last cup I’ve hoarded of all my teas since my interest began. I have far too many of them and a good few are 4 years old (yikes!) so to say they’ve seen better days is an understatement. I can happily say, though, that this tea was deliciously nutty to the end! A lovely tea to warm up with at work in the rotten weather. The water in the boiler at work is roughly 90 degrees, but there was no astringency to suggest the tea was burnt, and the flavour was not too savoury, which is something that I’ve found with other genmaichas. I don’t think a genmaicha is something I’m ever going to gravitate towards on a regular basis, but even as someone who doesn’t often drink these teas, I happily drank each and every cup.
