This tea has a very unique flavor- kind of toasty & sweet. Definitely unlike any other tea I’ve tried. I love it- drink it almost daily.

let it brew a little longer than supposed to.. about 4 1/5 – 5 min.. although a nice mild tea, you actually will pick up on the nice floral notes. little touch of honey would have been better, but the raw sugar I used was quite nice as a second choice

Very good! I got this for free with the Den’s Green Tea starter kit. I was hesitant about cool brewing, but it was the perfect drink for the afternoon on the go. It was good the second infusion, too.

Around 2:00 today my energy totally faded. So, I had a cup of this. I love it. The toasted rice, the extra green quality, the matcha… it’s comfort in a cup!

Yum! I made a small pot of this, and my espresso drinking husband even requested some: “a big mug of it, please!” So I guess I’ll be making another small pot by the end of this evening. :)

I really do love this tea. I’m a big fan of Genmaicha in general. When I finish up this batch, I’m going to give Samovar’s Ryokucha a try. I’m looking forward to seeing how the two compare.

So how did they compare?

Actually, I like Den’s a bit better. There’s much more matcha and it has a stronger flavor. In addition, it’s cheaper. I’m sticking with Den’s for my regular Genmaicha, but Samovar will win for other types of tea. :)

Thanks! I had just ordered a half pound of Den’s (my wife likes it too and it is on sale through October), but never tried Samovar’s. I saw it on Sam’s website, but also noticed Ryokucha is close to double the price and their minimum free shipping amount was $100. Still, I’ll have to order from Sam’s sometime. What do they do well?

I really like their oolongs a lot! I’ve been enjoying the four seasons (with many steeps each time) for a while, and just got the hawaiian oolong which was pricey but amazing and quite resteepable. I’m just trying a white (downy sprout) this morning and am really enjoying that one as well. :) I think the half pound of Den’s is a good choice… we’re going to have to do that next time at the rate we go through the stuff!

First cup of the day. Consumed during a hot game of Power Grid, but before yoga. I love this toasty tea. I realized that my bag’s “best by” date is coming up fairly quickly. I know I won’t finish it by then. Any guesses as to how long past the “best by” date this will last?

Well, I don’t have a guess as to how long, but here is a tip I read about online. I haven’t tried it, but it could work — if you put the amount of leaves you are planning to drink in a pan and roast them, you will bring out flavor again (even if it had ‘gone flat’ or however one would put it) and be able to use any of your old green teas even if they’ve gone past date. But just roast what you’re planning on drinking right away…

Interesting tip! Thanks!!

I’ve heard that in general japanese greens are good for about a year, but to be honest it’s probably a matter of personal preference aswell. If it still tastes good to you, then why not drink it? ;)

I had genmaicha with my tofu breakfast, though I’m not sure it was this one. The quirky local brunch joint has an extensive tea menu, mostly loose leaf, though they don’t tell you which company’s tea you’re drinking. Since I have this in my cupboard, I’m labeling this way. Yum!

drank Matcha Kaze by Den's Tea

I’ve enjoyed this straight-up in my cup, as well as mixed with milk and a bit of chocolate powder. It’s a solid Match for daily home use.

WOHOO!!! Chocolate! I’m thinking of steeping some jasmine tea and using that to make my matcha instead of plain water. What milk/water ratio do you use? Or do you use all milk?

I’m having a devil of a time getting this to froth. Do you have the same problem?

So much going on in this cup. More complex than I expected. One of my favorites.
