I found an unopened bag of this in my tea cabinet, so that gives me hope that it’s very well preserved and still delicious. Green teas in general aren’t a favorite for me, but there’s something so delightful about the aroma of genmaicha. I love that toasted rice smell especially, and the flavor is usually pretty good too. Since I bought my electric kettle, I haven’t been so afraid of trying the lower temp teas. I always seemed to mess them up before. This one has a nice coconut flavor, and the toastiness I love is there. I don’t get anything like flan though. To be fair, I don’t know if I’ve ever eaten flan. I think of it as a kind of caramel custard or pudding. So if that’s how flan tastes, I don’t taste it here. But it’s still a nice tea for an afternoon.
Flavors: Coconut, Toasty
