The roasted and nicely toasted notes of the rice with the smooth vegetal tones from the matcha make for a very pleasant cup!

At first sip of this tea you find a soothing and very mild liquid, although there is no passivity in the flavor at all. The tea is captivating and controls the senses, demanding more indulgence of this fine leaf.

There is some sort of expectation that one may find some small bits of toasted rice hidden away somewhere in the cup; and strangely, the thought of possibly adding milk (of which I haven’t at this point – yet;), it’s such a likeable combination. It also gives me thoughts of eating a bowl of Rice Krispies, I guess this is where the thoughts of the milk come from.

This sample makes me desiring for more, which was unexpected. I guess it’s time to update the shopping list!

I’m a southern boy that relocated to the Mid-West and has an intense love for high quality loose leaf tea! This is no doubt, a passion I intend to enjoy and pursue for the rest of my life! I love the art of tea, and the expression of it’s culture in each cup.

Typically, I’m a straight tea and loose-leaf type of drinker. Black teas (especially Taiwanese blacks), Greener Oolong and Sheng Pu-erhs are top on my list!

Don’t get me wrong though, I do like me some darker, roasted oolongs, shu puerhs, greens and whites are a must as well!
