Another awesome tea sent from VariaTEA!
I haven’t had a genmaicha in a long time now, years actually. I’m so excited for this one because banana!
The scent definitely has banana, so that bodes well. The initial sip has banana too, very much like a banana chip, which is what appeared to be in the dry tea. There’s a very subtle creamy aspect and a hint of sweetness that I can see being the marshmallow aspect here.
I did a re-steep of this and it’s just a delicious, which is such an upside to genmaicha. Even if some of the added flavours are lost, the genmaicha itself is so tasty! I’m going to do a third re-steep in the morning as well.
First steep 2 minutes
Second steep 3 minutes, 30 seconds
Overall, really enjoying this one. Thanks VariaTEA!
