Full disclosure: this tea was sent to me as a free sample by the vendor. However, there was no expectation that I would provide a review.

May as well move on to my other genmai-cha sample. This one a bit dustier and without so much rice.

Flavors are toasty but swing towards a sweet greenness quickly. Lingering glutamates from the rice stick on the palate. Still pretty rice heavy, but with more leaf and more kelpiness. Enjoyable, but simple.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 0 min, 45 sec

Bio

Exploring the world of fine Chinese and Japanese teas, my favorites include: sheng pu’er, moderately roasted oolongs, gyokuro, shincha, and high quality, artisanal whites and greens. I don’t subscribe to any particular style of brewing, but incorporate elements from traditional techniques to brew the best tea possible. I also seek to share the joy that tea brings me with others, but am really rather introverted.
