Another yummy tea from The Great Canadian Travelling Tea box round 1. I had this tea on April 30th/2014 as well !

Dry leaf: Genmaichas are just so visually appealing to me. I love the contrast in colors and textures in this tea. In this genmaicha, the leaves are sencha tea nestled with the beautiful roasted rice. It was very picturesque and I enjoyed taking photographs of this tea to capture its beauty. The leaves smell nice and sweet, as well as grassy, rich, and nutty. I really loved the myriad of scents in this tea.

Steeped: When pouring the water over these leaves I got a really nice roasted grassy smell. The water itself was a nice, light yellowy/green-y color. The 1st steep was nice and light with subtle flavors of grass.

Tea enthusiast, I love all things tea. Hot, iced or in a food of mine… if it’s tea, I love it. I have a fascination with tea and the many wonderful flavors I just haven’t gotten around to yet.
