drank Gen Mai Cha by SerendipiTea
40 tasting notes

So here is another awesome sample from Dylan and Missy. This is actually the tea that sparked the super care package.

I get it. I totally understand Dylan’s fervor for this. I love the roasty foretaste. I always want to taste popcorn first, but am quickly hit with the reminder that it’s rice not corn. The slightly vegetal, yet still sweet green comes in to wrap things up. Together they make for a nice flavor combo. I really like the juxtaposition between the light feel of the green base with the hearty flavor profile of the toastiness.

I will surely place an order for this one. This will likely be a constant in my cupboard.

Glad to see you like it man! I’ve heard about Den’s teas being a really good gen mai cha as well, but haven’t tried it yet (though I think we sent some to… Krystalyn? so she could compare it? I can’t remember).

Lol it was a spoiler! I’m gonna have to keep a list of surprise teas. ;)

Well, at this point, let’s hope I’m remembering correctly, and you won’t be horribly disappointed ;)
