Bad Christina does not own a digital scale, so Bad Christina overleafed this tea a TON. The instructions from Ubacat said 4g per cup, and since I have no idea of how much that is, I used about 8 teaspoons for a single 24 oz teapot of this.
I also followed the instructions to use boiling water on a very short steep (under a minute).
As a result, the sencha taste in this is strong, and it’s very umami, but I was hoping for more of the rice to come through.
However, I got so much of this in my swap that I’m not too put out. I’ll see how it works on a longer steep with lower temperature.
Also, over the next few days, I’m going to have a bunch of different genmaichas to figure out which one I like best. Aside from this, I have 3 others in my cupboard I haven’t even tried yet.
