I am always excited for a flavored genmaicha. Now 52 Teas is normally where I find them but every so often they pop up at other companies too. This is Tea Taxi’s take on one and it is quite nice.
With this blend the genmaicha seems to be the focus. The main flavor is the roastiness of the popped rice. There is also an underlying note of cereal that I would attribute to the rice as well. The green tea base is really quite mellow but is contributing a slight vegetalness that compliments the roastiness. However, it conflicts slightly with the strawberry flavor – one that is true to the fruit and thus not too sweet but still. It is not as prominent as you would expect but instead provides just enough of its flavor to keep things interesting and unique.
Tea Taxi suggests having this blend while watching your favorite flick. Instead I am sipping on it while watching A Series of Unfortunate Events on Netflix. The two are actually pairing well together as the show is in very muted colors and this tea reflects that with its more subdued taste.
Here’s the scoop!
