404 Tasting Notes
1 tablespoon for 318 ml
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.

Woodsy warming flavour. Eucalyptus-like spice balanced with lemon flavour. Lychee note in the aroma and flavour. I’m not detecting any creaminess but that may be because there was flavour lost in transit.
Reminds me of a spa sauna.
