This green tea is the best. My Japanese husband thinks so, too, and his mom is a tea ceremony teacher, so there you have it. It’s pricey, but worth it. We get it every once in a while and buy the less expensive ones in between. A nice treat, and you don’t need much to make a flavorful pot.
4 Tasting Notes
This is a good, decent-priced green tea. I like the young, bright flavor of the buds. You don’t need much to make a strong pot. Would get this again and again and rotate with the other Mellow Monk teas.
This is a very nice tasting genmaicha. The roasted brown rice flavor is perfectly balanced. It even looks different than others I’ve seen. The rice is a deeper, caramel-y color and doesn’t look “dead.” Don’t be mislead by the review from the lovely white dog. Genmaicha is a very traditional way to drink green tea in Japan.
This is a nice mellow black tea. When you don’t feel like green and you don’t feel like a deep black tea, this is a happy medium.
