I wasn’t quite sure how to brew this tea since I didn’t feel like pulling out a gaiwan. Using an infuser basket and ceramic pot worked pretty well just the same though. Boy is this stuff green! Definitely a lot more cloudy that regular genmaicha. It was sweet but the nutty taste I love was still there.

This was an unusual find but I actually quite liked it. It was smooth and mellow with just a hint of a citrus aftertaste. My boyfriend even liked it and he sweetens everything he drinks :p

Just tried this the other day. I really enjoyed it and I usually don’t ‘love’ pu-erhs, but maybe I just haven’t tried the right pu-erhs.

LissaMarie, what kind have you tried? Cooked? Raw? Amber?

Yum. I LOVED this tea. I am a big mint and vanilla person so it exactly my tastes. I was a bit scared of the licorice but the flavors are really well balanced.

I finished off the last of this stuff. It’s definately a staple for me. Sweet green tea with a rich nutty aftertaste. Gotta love “popcorn” tea :)

I have to admit, I’m a little bit jealous of your tin. Such good stuff! And what a good boyfriend!

I’m so impressed, its rare to find people who have a passion for lapsang. Its a fantastic tea, one of my favorites no doubt.
