This is more or less one of my fallback teas. I think it’s delicious and I plan on buying more once my tin runs out, because genmaicha is one of my favorite things and gyokuro is another. I was wondering if Teavana had any genmai, so I checked and MY GOD, NOT ONLY DO THEY HAVE GENMAI, IT IS ALSO GYOKURO. AT THE SAME TIME. I was not disappointed.
I was kind of worried that the nice toasty genmai part might get lost in the vegetal (look at me, learning tea words!) taste of the gyokuro, but it didn’t! The gyokuro just brought it out more. I really hope Teavana doesn’t discontinue this, it’s like giving your mouth a hug.
