A long while back (shortly after starting this blog) I wrote a post about some homemade genmaicha. It was good, but since then I got a pretty massive bag of real genmaicha for a good price (I think it was like 800 grams for $6, or something crazy like that).
This tea is a staple tea for me, like puer. Something cheap but good.
One nice thing about it is that it seems incredibly difficult to oversteep it. I think I’ve left it in my French press until it’s cold before and it hasn’t been bitter.
Great roasted smell and flavor, combined with a good bancha taste. I’m actually running a little low on it, I’ll have to pick up a new bag before long.
