This tea smells AMAZING. I’m a big genmaicha fan. I’ve tried a few flavored genmaicha blends from 52Teas, including marshmallow treat and s’mores. I think I prefer this one from Nina’s! The addition of black tea seems to make the blend richer, and I love the toasty caramel flavor! This is the kind of tea I tend to prefer with a little sweetener. Do be careful not to over brew this one, I think I did and it is a tad bit astringent!

Thanks again for the samples, Laurent :)

I love pretty much every type of tea camellia sinensis can produce. I like herbal teas sometimes but I can’t stand rooibos.

Butiki, Verdant, Mandala and Den’s are my favorite online retailers so far.
