"The leaves were very green yet quite broken and powdery. Flavor not as nuanced or buttery as I would have expected. I ended up blending this with rest of my genmai-cha to balance it out. Will not reorder."
"I love the full flavored cup, with the thick, almost brothy mouth feel. Good umami. Relatively pricey, (and yes, it is nice not to have to pay for tea) but good for multiple infusions. Don't pooh-pooh multiple infusions, one gets additional caffeine, flavor and enjoyment from the 2nd and subsequent brewing."
