Had this today at work – I’m on call! Ugh. Used the hot water from the coffee machine. Not bad, an I got to drink some tea as opposed to coffee.
Great this morning with a chai honey stick. :)
I have a very soft spot for genmaicha. My fav Japanese restaurant serves genmaicha! This one also came with my Den’s Tea Green Novice Sampler. This definitely had extra matcha! I’ve had genmaicha with matcha, and my cup has never been this bright green before. Green’s my favorite color! I love the color of the liquer. Also, the color of the leaves before I steeped them was covered with bright green matcha.
The scent was fantastic. Toasty, warm, popcorn, roasted rice… yum! The taste was enjoyable and delightful. I steeped this twice.
This tea is so forgiving! I accidentally left the leaves in the water for a little longer than I intended since I was cooking! It still tastes good!
After this, I have enough leaves left for one more steeping session!
Its been so nice out here lately! I decided to make iced tea with this. Yum! lips smacking :)
Finished this up today. A little sad to see it done, but it was great while it lasted! It has a really nice sweet warmth to it like vanilla but fruity. Although I really enjoyed this tea, I don’t think I’ll be buying a large size of it.

This is the first tea I’ve ever tried from Den’s Tea! I bought the Green Tea Sampler for novices, a really cute kokoro (kyusu) teapot, and the sakura sencha gift set. I must say, I am so impressed with this sencha fuka-midori. ! I steeped it according to Den’s recommended brewing instructions. Delicious! I steeped it twice and shared it with my boyfriend, who is starting to like greens!
A great way to enjoy the mornings. There is enough in the sampler to make 2-3 pots!
So I got my package from Den’s Tea! Its my first time ordering from there. I bought a kyusu and used it to steep this tea! It is so delicious! I steeped it twice.
I had such a long weekend! This tea was great!

Backlogging. Drank this last night while I was on call. With this new schedule 4am-6/7pm, I hope I won’t switch to coffee.

When I first opened this tin, the first thing I noticed was how oily and black the leaves look. The smell was just like toasted sesame, which I absolutely love! After I steeped it, the leaves looked dark brown and almost had a green sheen to it. Very nice. The smell of sesame was faint to me. The taste is very faint sesame but bitter. I added some sugar after tasting it without sugar. I believe it needed it. I don’t have any milk, but it might help to add some milk too. Overall, good tea. I’m not too into bitter though. My mouth feels a bit dry now.
Starch. Interesting tea. This smells just like sweet potato! I actually had some chicken with this tea, and it was a nice complement. The flavor is really strong and had a sweet taste to it. It is VERY starchy, and it left a starchy aftertaste in my mouth. One that is similar to after you’ve swallowed down a piece of sweet potato. One of the things I didn’t like was the weird, dark film. It looks slimy and gross.
This was a fun tea to try. I’m always interested in trying new things! I don’t know if I’ll reach for this often though.
Had some stove-top chai tonight. I’m burning the candles since I have an exam coming up. Yummy! :)
