For Mastress Alita’s December Sipdown Challenge – a genmaicha
At first I thought I would have to skip this prompt, because I forget this tea. I am not a genmaicha fan (yet) but I like this as a sweet latte. I forget how light it looks steeped, but the taste is no shrinking violet. I think it is in line with the few other genmaicha I have tried.
I steeped it twice in a Kamjove and added it to a cup, stirred in sugar, and then added warmed milk….lots of warmed milk. It was quite good and gave me the energy after teaching to cook the first big meal I have cooked since Thanksgiving. But it is too burned roasty for me to like it plain, and that goes for any genmaicha, not just this one.
