Note: This tea was not advertised on their website, so there is no picture nor description. I found it in their shop in Durango, Colorado.

I am finally back in California now. I got this tea several days ago. I have to say I’m pretty satisfied with this one. They had a multitude of other teas which were not available on the website. This puzzled me, but I did not bother to ask, as I was too busy deciding which teas to grab.

Leaf Quality
The leaf quality was above average. For the most part, there were whole green leaves with only the top bud and second leaf. However, there were broken pieces and some dust which settled at the bottom. This could have been because of transport. The tea smelled quite good, and almost sweet.

Brewed Tea
The brewed tea smelled very much like the rice that was in it. I could barely pick up the sweet notes. The color of the liquid was a light yellow-green, and was not murky, despite having rice in it.

The first taste was like drinking rice. Upon the second taste, I noticed the sweet and floral notes. This combination went well together. There was almost a smell of almonds. I liked that neither flavor overpowered the other, as might be the case with other Gen Mai Cha’s.

It is too bad that I would have to go all the way from California to Colorado to get this tea again, as it is not sold online. However, the next time I find myself in Durango, I will get this tea.

Usually if you call most tea stores will sell and ship any tea to you. My local shop hasn’t an online shop at all but will take phone orders and ship.

Thanks for the info! I’ll be calling them often it seems.
