176 Tasting Notes
Backlogging a bit; I’m trying to decide which Genmaicha is my favorite between Zen Tea and Adagio! They both have a slightly different tastes and very different brewing times. I think I’m leaning a bit towards the Zen Tea but it’s a hard choice!
Today is just an EARL GREY kinda day I guess. Tried this sample, from the sound of it I expected it to be similar to Zen Tea’s earl grey cream, but I think this one was less… creamy? Good taste though! And I could get a hint of cream in the aftertaste. Still delicious enough I didn’t feel the need to add milk, though I’m sure that would have tasted swell too.
Ohh this is a nice earl grey, I really love the smell of lavender though in all honestly I don’t get much of the taste (IDK WHAT DOES LAVENDER TASTE LIKE ANYWAY?), could be because I added milk though. BUT ANYWAY it is quite delicious!
Oh my god can we talk about how much I LOVE GENMAICHA BECAUSE this is seriously one of my favorite teas next to some good ol’ standard oolongs. This stuff is amazing, the toasty rice flavor is so much stronger with the loose leaf stuff and seeing as this NUTTY RICE taste is my favorite part I WELCOME IT WITH OPEN ARMS. I don’t really know how to compare it to the Zen Tea sample, but I guess you just can’t really go wrong with me and genmaicha.
