This is a nice one from the local teahouse. It has nettles, which are supposedly very effective in providing antihistamines or something. I don’t know how well it worked, due to not actually being allergic at the time. It tasted minty, but not overwhelmingly so, like many of the moroccan mint teas are. I’ll have to try it again when I’m overwhelmed by histamines.

Wow. This is my first time trying a genmaicha. I’m blown away by the toasty rice flavor. They really weren’t kidding when they said it had a rice-y taste. It quite effectively gets rid of the bitter flavor often found in a lot of green teas. I’m not sure how it compares to other genmaicha, as I’ve only had this one, but now I’m hooked.
Had this with my mum the other day. The infused smell is delicious. It’s so creamy that it even smells creamy. It has a bitter aftertaste though. I don’t particularly like Earl Grey, like most other black teas. I’m afraid this might have influenced my perception of this tea.
The smell of the infusion is so delicious. There’s a definite strawberry scent, and I can even find some hints of papaya. The flavors dominate the green tea, but this is by no means a bad thing. And it’s not bitter at all.
Mmmm. I’d had this tea before at the teahouse, and was really glad I could pick some up in a bag. There are a lot of really complex flavors in here that I love; ginger, peppermint, cinnamon… The addition of the cinnamon really is genius. It’s just about the flavor though; the first time I tried this was when I had a head cold and a sore throat. It soothed everything away for several hours. I love having this to brew at home.
The teacup smells quite nice; it’s dark and earthy, which is to be expected of a tea named ‘Ancient Forest’. It has a dark, grassy taste, with a nice full feeling. It smells almost exactly like it tastes, which is rare, and kind of amazing. Unfortunately, I don’t have any sugar right now to see if I can bring out anymore contrast in it. It keeps its flavor when it’s cold, and there are some new notes of flavor that come out when it’s cold.
