drank Genmai Cha by Adagio Teas
862 tasting notes

Smells like a rice cake in the cup. A vaguely burnt one, to me.
Tastes alot like adagio’s sencha that is also in this sampler. They’re both savory, and both good. This one has a rice-y flavor, followed by the green tea, and pairs extremely well with the japanese food (sushi, miso soup, and seaweed salad) that we ate for dinner.
I do prefer the sencha to this one; however, I will definitely enjoy finishing off this sample as well.

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
