1.25 tbsp for 375 ml of water

Very fruity aroma. Mostly cherry flavour creeping in on aftertaste. Black tea taste along side fruit flavours is a little astringent and overpowers the fruit.

Thanks to Nina’s Paris for the sample.

Thick mouth feel that lingers- makes you feel as if you just bit into a real marshmallow treat dessert. Marshmallow sweetness with a lovely roasted rice flavour complement. Green tea flavour is quite subdued- almost metallic in flavour.

Infusing at a lower temperature for a shorter amount of time seems to cause the bitterness to be subdued. The tea is much more enjoyable.

Bold flavour but dilute-tasting; this may be because it was sitting around in a sample baggie for a while. I like the profile of this tea. I can taste faint notes of everything that I love in my favourite blacks; the leathery notes, hint of sweetness, straw-like notes, smooth mouth-feel.

Thanks to Indigobloom and Sil for sharing!

Nice roasted flavour. Extra savoury and nutty tinge from the soybeans. Oceanic quality of the green is present but possibly milder when compared to other genmaichas. Mild roasted flavour. Clear/smooth/soup-y mouthfeel.
