83 Tasting Notes


I reused the same tea pearls 3 times today and only lost a little bit of flavour the third time. A great resilient tea

Has an subtle nutty flavour to it almost an after taste, can’t quite place it but you know its making your tea taste better.

You know the way you can taste the difference between chocolate spread with hazelnuts and just regular chocolate spread.

Yes this is the hazelnut chocolate spread of green tea.

Is this genmaicha or something else? The “sugar puffs” description in the tea info reminds me of Auggy and takgoti’s reviews of soba-cha.

But anyway, mmm, popcorn….


I sooooo want to try this!


that would be clever Shanti. . . .turning the Genmaicha into a popcorn “feel”. ya, now you made me curious too!

I just updated the image of this tea. I think Genmaicha and popcorn tea are the same thing maybe?


The tea looks great. It has both the brown popcorn kernels in but some are puffed up like real popcorn.


ah neat! didn’t know.


I thought it was actual popcorn! I just googled it and ended up at that same site! I’d still try it, sure! :P I’ve had a few others with the puffed rice in them! Neat!

Great slow release tea. Good quality tea that can be reused with more water after you have finished.

Has an amazing green colour about it and a very earthy taste. Lots of flavour. One of the best I have tasted.


Haven’t checked out this brand yet. Thanks for the rec!

It is sold in a tea bar in the UK, I’m not sure if it is the cafe’s own brand.

I run a web design agency in Leeds, UK. Love tea and unicycles, but not at the same time.
