When I had bought this I had gone only off the name and it was a nice surprise to see it was a green tea with genmaicha. I hadn’t tried genmaicha before, although I think I have some in the cupboard.
My first few sips I was confused, I was tasting a roasted/toasted flavor over everything else. Then a few more sips and I was able to taste some of the apple. I am getting some of a toasted apple note, I just think there is a lot of other subtle flavors I just haven’t really tried before and that are distracting me from the toasted apple. I am now eager to try a straight genmaicha tea to try and distinguish the flavors more.
In the end it was a nice cup, a light and complex flavor that I am still trying to work out an hour after I’ve finished.
