I've had this genmaicha for 6 months now and it's quite stale. Despite my best efforts to brew it well, it still seems fairly cloudy and astringent.
Don't worry that's not liquor, just genmaicha. :)
Tea: 1 tsp
Water: 1 cup
Water Temperature: 90 Degrees Celcius
Brew Time: 45 seconds
It was a quite decent Genmaicha for its price ($6CAD for 50g) and I generally do enjoy Sweet Dreams' teas casually. I would recommend their fruit teas more than their greens though, if you happen to live in the Waterloo region, it's a guilt-free pleasure :)
