Sipdown! (1 | 253)
First one for August, yay! \o/
I found this one a tad bit disappointing. That being said, it’s only because of the goji berries. I was looking forward to seeing how a touch of fruitiness would meld with a genmaicha, but I couldn’t taste even a hint of goji here.
It is a nice enough genmaicha though. The Laoshan green is naturally super nutty and beany tasting, so it goes splendidly with the toasty rice. Overall, it tastes like creamy edamame mixed with toasted cashews and a bit of brown rice. Sweet and savory, a bit brothy, and very restorative.
Not sure I would order it again, since I could just mix something similar myself. But a very tasty tea!
