Steeped in 10 oz. of water.
The dry leaf smells sweet and toasty at the same time, but also separate from each other, if that makes any sense. In other words, it smells like it looks, which is to say, genmaicha with marshmallows added.
As far as taste goes – it is really interesting!
I get the genmaicha on the front of the sip, and after it’s gone, there’s the marshmallow – it’s not sweet, really but it is marshmallow, none the less. If I added some sugar or sweetener this would be right on for a rice krispy treat. I’m impressed!

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. "
