Probably my least favorite from the tea tasting. It’s good, but I much prefer http://www.steepster.com/teas/takaokaya/genmai-cha to it.

A bit watery taste, but you know you’re drinking green tea. A bit of an aftertaste.

I appreciate the lower caffeine dose, and could see this as an evening cup. It’s darker than the rest of the Japanese green teas in the sampler pack, and earthier.

earthier than the sencha deep roast, but still a classic green tea taste.

This was my favorite of the tea tasting. It’s strong, and what I expect my green tea to taste like.

Bio

I’ve been into tea, at some level, since college with a first tin of loose tea brought back by my parents from Oxford. My love of tea increased with a visit to Boston and a chance cup at Tealuxe. Since then I’ve only gotten more interested in tea and have developed more of an appreciation for it.

100: a perfect cuppa. these are the teas I’ll keep in my cupboard and tend to be one per type of tea.

90-99: will definitely get more of this tea

80-89: likely to get more and perhaps it will become a favorite with time

70-79: very good, depending on my mood or the season

60-69: wouldn’t actively try to get this tea, but also wouldn’t avoid it in a tea shop or restaurant

50-59: run-of-the-mill tea for me

40-49: decent, would hit the spot in some moods, but probably wouldn’t purchase it for my cupboard

30-39: okay, will try again, maybe

20-29: meh. I’d try this tea again if no other were available

10-19: drinkable, but a forced cup

0-9: didn’t even finish the cup
