drank Gen Mai Cha Sencha by T2
218 tasting notes

This is my first ever Gen Mai Cha, so T2, please take criticism with a grain of salt (or rice?).

This was interesting. I could taste the sencha, it was soft and a bit sweet, but not overly powerful. I could also clearly identify the rice, it tasted roasted, almost like slightly overcooked popcorn kernals. I didn’t get a popcorny taste.

I’m unsure about this one, it was pleasant enough to drink, but didn’t wow me. Again, unsure if its gen mai cha, or T2’s gen mai cha. Definitely warrants further testing! (Which I’ll be able to do very shortly, as I type staff are unpacking stock in the soon to be opened store in my city. Just in time for my birthday! I think my brain might explode – a real, proper tea store without having to fly anywhere!!!)

I remember getting my first cup of tea at about the age of 8. Just a standard run of the mill black, with some sugar and milk to make it palatable to an 8year old. But a love was born and I’ve never looked back!

I’ve always appreciated the quality of loose leaf, and thanks to the discovery of the fanatastic gadgets at DavidsTea while on holiday, the tea obsession has grown! Is it weird to be ordering tea and having it sent half way around the world?

I’d love to do some tea swaps with people to try new teas. I have a bit of a DavidsTea range for any Australians interested in trying some DT goodness minus international postage fees!

Ive just started working at The Art of Tea , a small Tasmanian company. They dont currently ship overseas, but im more than happy to arrange swaps with people. their full product listing can be found here: http://www.artoftea.com.au/. (December 2012).
