Finishing off a sample of this one I got in a swap a while back :)

This is pretty good, but no substitute for a good sencha IMO

Yay! My first plain pu-erh! Just got a boatload of samples in the mail I ordered for upton….

The steeped cup smells very earthy and almost mushroomish. Color is very dark like coffee. I added a small amount of sugar because I like sugar in my black teas so I assume I will for pu-erh as well.

The flavor is rich and earthy. Not very astringent. Almost musty but not in a bad way. Not sure how I feel about this tea honestly! It’s so different!

It’s cold and dreary here today so this warmly spiced tea sounds perfect. I’m making a big to-go mug of it to take with me shopping this afternoon since I’m off work! Yum! Warm and comforting :)

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!


Sakura teas are often really delightful
I love your ducky demon avatar, so cute :)


I love smelling Japanese green teas, especially this one.

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.


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!


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 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, TeaVivre and Den’s are my favorite online retailers so far.
