A decent EG for being in a bag. I like to use to make milk tea, since it’s kind of blah just on its own. But not a bad flavor at all. I pick this up for having tea at work, since it’s hard to loose leaf at times.

So glad to hear that you enjoyed the Earl Grey!

This is my go-to drink for sitting around at home. It keeps you perky and feeling slightly loopy (this might just be me.)

Great mate flavor, light but full.

Perfect everyday tea. I like to have this when I get to work after breakfast. The puffed rice gives a nice toasty depth to Maeda-en’s great sencha.

drank mugicha by House Foods

This is probably the most successful you can be making a tea with water from a tap (GASP!) The flavor balance of the toasty and light mugi is great, but heating the water to steep it gives it a pretty bitter flavor (and I love bitter.) Definitely easy on the wallet though, so this is usually my go-to mugicha.

I absolutely am addicted to mugicha; it’s hard to find the good stuff outside of Japan but Maeda-en makes my favorite so far. It’s got a great balance of toasty and light, although I tend to brew it a long time because I really like a strong mugi flavor to come out. It’s definitely best straight from the fridge! Nothing better on a hot day without an air conditioner.

This is my favorite everyday tea; it’s got a great toasted flavor, a cross between a good houjicha and the typical sencha. Also, comes in fabulous hundred-bag sacks! Although I generally like to use loose, this is my go-to teabag.
