From Staufs Coffee Roasters

Dry Aroma: Toasted, carmalized popcorn, earthy, oceanic
Wet Aroma: Deep toasted note, sweet corn, autumn hay
Appearance: Broad, bright green leaves, sandy-hued puffed rice, tightly rolled-dark, jade leaves
Cup: Bright sunflower yellow liqour, with slight flat-jade green luminence. Small degree of very fine particulate. Smooth, creamy mouth-feel with initial earthy, sweet flavor that vanishes elusively under the toasted, puffed rice overtone, and a rich, green oolong buttery finish. Well balanced and clean, yet flavorful enough to pair with strong Japanese miso, Thai curries, and Vietnamese Pho noodle bowls. Offers 2-3 extractions with the earthy, cream note becoming more pronounced and the toasted rice flavor gently fading. A good up for anyone who loves Genmaicha but finds the grassy or toasted notes of some blends to be overpowering.

I was asked for an unusual, but good, green iced tea blend for this changing autumn and I put this together for a sample.
Cold brewed, the clean and rich earthy profile is deeper and the toasted rice note is a woven thread that fades in and out and acts like an elusive wind through the branches…much like the image of the dragon through the bamboo on the Vietnam Service Medal. It has a creamy, buttery profile when brewed warm and a deep, lovely yellow extraction that has an uplifting quality on a rainy, cooling day. The toasted note is still very genmaicha-like, but the smoother balance of green tea undertones and naturally sweet finish is a comforting treat that seems to drink in the autumn changes. Great paired with food.
