Yet another new experience from the Asian market!
I had seen some reviews of this blend, the price was right and I tried it. Honestly, the aroma when it is steeping is not what I would call wonderful, this does not drive you wild like vanilla, or chai. But, the taste is something else. And like my first experiences with Per-uh and Lapsang Souchong, unlike anything I have ever tried. Toasty, grainy, savory and then the subtleness of the green tea. The color is a nice shade of green, not cloudy at all. The more I sip, the more I like this… I have the leaf version, not bagged.

Gotta love the Asian supermarket…I found my first bag of Maeda-En Genmai-Cha at the Asian Grocery. Packaged similarly to this one. If you venture to add honey or sugar in the raw, it’s like drinking Honey Smacks. One of my favorite cereals :)

I always liked Honey Smacks too…I will try some honey in it tonight.
I love the Samurai legend connected to this one too!
