Free sample form Upton! Cool. I guess they started giving out samples with every order, as this is the second time I got a little bonus! =)

This tea smells nice and toasty, with a slight nuttiness and a bit of the green tea base.

Taste wise, this one is pretty good. It’s partially sweet, has the nice toasty taste I love in a Genmaicha, and is nice and smooth. It’s also got a nice vegetal/earthy taste mixed in.

It’s a basic Genmaicha, but there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s tastey, relaxing, and just what I needed after a really rough night at work. Happy I got to sample this!

This is the first genmaicha I’ve ever tried. One of my favorite authors @neilhimself had mentioned this is his favorite tea and I wanted to try it ever since. I happily got this as a free sample from Upton. I really though this tea was outstanding! The idea of rice in the tea blend was very strange to me, but as soon as I tasted it, I understood. The counterpoint of the greenness of the tea with the nutty toastiness of the rice is very balanced. Its almost like taking a whiff of a bucket of popcorn and drinking tea or smelling your morning cereal. It sounds strange, but it works. Its a very smooth and relaxing cup and I would most definitely buy a tin of it.
