Woke up with a massive killer migraine. In mulling over all potential causes, the final possibility was not having drunk enough tea. Ah, maybe that’s it.

I bought this tea at the tea festival here at the end of January. The first several times I had this, I really quite enjoyed it: classic genmaicha. Today, however, I dipped further into the bag, so my dry leaf was far more powder tea and far less roasted rice. Then, despite aiming for a very brief steep, my steeper clicky thing got stuck and didn’t drain properly or quickly enough, resulting in a far longer than optimal steep. So, today, the tea is too strong and a bit bitter. Not the tea’s fault.

My migraine seems to be slowly subsiding. I hope. If so, despite the bitterness, it’s a win.

I will refrain from rating.

Later in the day reflection…
I think I had used far too much leaf when I made this tea today, owing to the fact that it was mostly tea powder and few rice grains. That and the prolonged steeping time resulted in a poor-ish first cup. However, steeping two and three were lovely.

Noon, I hope you’re feeling better now.

Thank you! I enjoyed steep two with some roasted coconut crunchy strips. That and the tea appear to have been the perfect solution toward wellbeing.

Beautiful rich dark green leaves when dry. Changes to medium green spinach-looking leaves when steeped.

The infusion is a light but very green colour, rather than the yellow green we normally see with senchas and Chinese green teas.

Flavour reminds me of sweet grass, with only a hint of dryness at the end. Very refreshing yet still warming in this weather. I would like to try it cold brewed as well in the summer – wonder how that would taste.

This was a sample but definitely putting this on my want list.

Flavors: Spinach, Sweet, warm grass, Vegetables
