From Fortnum & Mason

A new green tea, Genmaicha translates as ‘Brown Rice Tea’ and is sometimes referred to as ‘the people’s tea’. A unique Japanese tea, it was originally created centuries ago – at a time when the price of tea was unaffordable to most and blending with rice made it affordable to many more people. This blend of steamed green tea and roasted brown rice, produces a savoury, mellow, gently roasted flavour. Drink and enjoy at any time of day – it pairs particularly well with fish dishes and Asian cuisine.

Fortnum & Mason Sachet Advent Day 6

I knew there was a genmaicha in the advent and it was one of the teas that met with a groan when I read the list because I don’t generally like genmaicha. You aren’t going to like every single tea in a collection, though, so I was not badly put off. I did avoid advents that had a lot of red rooibos, though! But I am willing to try new things and to keep trying old things to see if I develop more appreciation for them.

The back of the box said that this sachet resteeps well for multiple infusions, so I started off making two and combining them. I am really surprised. I enjoyed every sip and plan to steep this again.

For a breakfast cuppa, the roasty aroma made it seem both comforting and strengthening. The sip gave the impression of heavily toasted bread rather than horribly burned popcorn. In many ways it came off as a soft, roasty green tea. I think if someone else made it and told me it was a plain green tea with toasted bread notes, I would have believed it.

This is a surprise winner and one I would consider purchasing a tin of one day when my cupboard is under control.

It was enjoyed plain, no milk and no sweetener.

That sounds like a nice one.
