I already knew I love genmaicha but this is my first experience with an “extra green” version with added matcha. This along with everything else in my sample pack from Den’s was very good and I would totally buy again!

Really lovely sencha base with a floral cherry note. Falling in love with green teas today <3 This particular tea is really beautiful dry too. The dark green sencha with teeny sakura blossoms is so pretty!

2nd steep I added a tiny bit of raw sugar to…really kicked the cherry aspect up a notch!

This is a wonderful buttery vegetabley green. No bitterness. So glad I got the sampler from Den’s so I could try some Japanese green teas! They are fast becoming my favorites.

Stephanie

Also interesting- I like sugar in most of my teas but Japanese greens I like all by themselves! Genmaicha, Houji-cha and now Sencha, too!

Stephanie

2nd steep was equally delicious :D

I’m finding the same thing sugar wise with those greens! It’s strange, but I’m enjoying it!

I oversteeped this one today, oops! It happens sometimes, when I try to make tea at work and then get distracted with work stuff. Anyway oversteeping didn’t damage it too badly. It is very strong but not bitter. I love this creamy tea. Super soothing on a chilly day!

This is my third time trying a matcha. The first time I had just a basic matcha and prepared it in the traditional way and I did NOT like it. The 2nd time I had white chocolate matcha from Red Leaf and made a hot latte and thought it was pretty tasty. This time I had pumpkin pie matcha and made it into an iced latte using the cocktail shaker method. I like how easy it was to prepare this way and the flavored matcha with ice and sugar and milk was very good! Honestly though, you could add a bunch of milk and sugar to pretty much anything and it would taste good to me, LOL. I’m not sure if its the matcha I like or just the pumpkin flavoring here. shrug

My daughter loves this one, and only this one. I have a large on the way for her now, and I gave her two for Christmas, and she has ordered once since Christmas….yes, she is drinking a lot of this flavor!

This tea is very nice! This is another one I was very unsure of based on the smell of the dry leaves. Light buttery green tea base with a nice mild tropical flavor. I am enjoying it hot but I bet this one would also be very good iced.

Jasmine pearls are fast becoming one of my favorite teas of all time. These are what angels would drink, people! Delicate sweet little pearls of yum! Thanks TC!

Stephanie

I resteeped the same leaves 4 times this afternoon, too!
