Interesting. I added the tea but never wrote the tasting note. Oh well.
I haven’t had much experience with genmaicha. I know that it’s a brown rice and green tea blend. What I’ve had before may have been old because I didn’t get much flavor.
This is a whole different things. It’s truly a wonderful drink.
There was a nice roasted brown rice scent. When looking at the leaves you could see the brown rice as well as little bits of popped popcorn in with the sencha.
When brewed the liquid was light yellow and there was a light brown rice scent. I taste the brown rice and a little bit of the popcorn. When taking a drink there is a light after taste with kind of an astringent lingering flavor. More of a crisp astringency not an annoying astringency.
It is very calm and refreshing. I think I will have to delve into genmaicha a bit more.
