246 Tasting Notes
I made this with vanilla almond milk and agave nectar and it is very good. The spices are balanced and it’s solid without being heavy. Very yummy.
I expected the mint to be too strong by the smell, but instead the tea tastes of the green and not really any mint….it’s more that the mint leaves that little zing in your mouth as you swallow, rather than being a flavor.
It’s not terrible, just not great.
I’m not liking this. Normally I enjoy smokey teas, so I expected to like it. It tastes like a camp fire. Not pleasantly.
Smoky with a faint sweetness in the back of the throat. Toasty tasty. Not a favorite, but very glad I received enough for several cups. Might buy more!
This was a gentle, toasty green. In other genmaichas I’ve had the rice taste made it strong and unpleasant. This was quite yummy, easy to drink.

This smells Very sweet and a bit dark.
The taste is very round and full on the tongue, a rich dark Assam taste without bitterness or burnt flavor at all. It is very sweet/malty around the back of the throat and a bit fruity in the nose. A pleasing taste! There’s also something there with the zinginess of mint without the flavor.
TeaEqualsBliss’s description of it tasting a lot of buttered lima beans is dead on. It has a short finish but while sipping is very round in the mouth, almost but not quite coating.
I made this gongfu style so take that into account. I wanted to try it this way as I was trying other teas today like so.
It’s good. I like it. The taste is hard to describe. It’s pleasantly sweet and reminds me of barley. It’s light but with a lingering finish, mostly on the front of the tongue.
While I am trading most of my ITFA teas (not that they’re bad, they have all been great quality! Just not favorites for me), I think I’m going to keep this one. Thankfully the sample is huge in this tea club and it’ll last me near forever :D
I definitely suggest trying it if you get the chance!
