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!
