I had this last night. It’s been a while since I’ve had genmaicha, which is one of my favorites.
First, let me admit that I ordered this tea to get free shipping and because I could get it in a little tin for $5. I got a pretty decent amount of tea in the little tin.
The leaves are a little more broken than I like in my tea, but not too bad. But then I oversteeped it on the first infusion. The combination of the two added just a little bitterness, but not nearly as bad as I expected for the oversteep. The rice is really nice and adds a great flavor.
Second infusion was really quick, and I paid more attention. Perfect!
