This tea has grown on me from the first sip on. It’s real green and lightly murky. Very strong smelling. Thick on the tongue. It is one of the more grassy teas I have tasted. One of the best loose teas I have bought from an Asian grocery store, of course that’s not saying much. The shop Mitsuwa near Chicago seems to have a good turn around on their tea, always featuring a new brand. Of all the Asian groceries, I think this would be the only place I would buy tea.

Anyways, it’s a good blend. Not my favorite genmaicha…but I’ll go through the bag no problem.

I love cooking, sleeping, reading, reggae music, and tea. I also enjoying reading about tea, the culture and ceremonies, and the diverse types.

I think most the teas I drink are 80% iced, but on some days, it’s opposite that, especially days off! I can’t believe it took me this long to try different teas. Better now than never!

Reading the reviews help guide me to the right tea. I have been turned on to so many delightful brews.

I am ALWAYS up for swapping. Just PM me.
