My Den’s order came today! Talk about super quick service. I reallllly want to try the matcha, but it’s too late in the evening for that. So I decided to try this out first, which came in my sampler.

This is pretty freaking great. As I’ve said a million times before, I generally don’t love green teas. But this is sweet, soft, and so soothing. There is a bitterness at the end of the sip that I don’t love – I’m not sure if I steeped too long or if that’s supposed to be there; Den’s website does mention a bitterness with this sencha.

This is the beginning and end of my sample, since I made a whole pot. Will report back on the next steep.

You’re smarter than I am. I tried mine at 9pm lol.

Haha, I should have made something stronger than a white tea. I’m literally falling asleep right now. Wait so you got Den’s $3 sampler or made individual purchases? Or both?

Bethany

Both! I got the sampler, Pineapple Sencha, Genmaicha Extra Green, and Matcha Kaze.

I was stupid and forgot to order the sampler. I guess I missed my chance, since it is for new customers only!

Ricky, it’s w/ purchase only. Fcmonroe, well it’s not like you wouldn’t want to buy large amounts of all the teas anyway lol:)
