This tea was drinkable, much better than sencha. Its a little earthy and a little nutty tasting. It had a light mouthfeel and not as tasty as the genmaichi. I’m trying to like green teas, but its really not working for me. I like many of the chinese and Indian green teas but the Japanese variety is baffling me.

The reason you may not care as much for the Japanese greens is the process. They steam them, whereas the Chinese pan fire the leaves. I, myself, far prefer the Chinese to the Japanese for this reason. Just a thought.

Dan, we’re total opposites- houjicha and gen mai cha are the only greens I don’t like lol.
