So I just started watching some episodes of the The Great Canadian Baking Show on youtube this past week. Which to my delight, I found out Dan Levy is one of the hosts. Hoping to find a way to watch more soon. :)
Preparation: Western (unsweetened)
Tasting notes: This is pretty much tastes like a Strawberry-Raspberry Genmaicha which is really good. There is some candied/jammy strawberry notes and some tart raspberry notes from the fruit pieces. The toasty rice comes through nicely for me after steeping three minutes, not immensely so but it’s there. It’s been awhile since I have had a flavored green tea so it’s not unwelcome. I know that I could steep for 4 minutes to get stronger rice notes and raspberry, but I am concerned I would be pushing the green a little past it’s prime. I like that I can have this tea plain without any additives, it’s a nice change of pace.
Flavors: Grain, Strawberry, Tart, Toast
