A Surprise!
Jared – FL – July 27, 2020

I'd never really tried a tea like this before, and though it wasn't my favorite... its was quite delicious! It has a very potent roasted flavor, so I'd recommend steeping it lightly. With just a little bit of sugar, the flavor really opens up and has a lot of character. If you love green tea, I believe it is an exceptional one you should try!

Great Gen-Mai Cha

This is the best Gen-Mai Cha I've ever purchased from American or European sellers.

Solid staple, always a good choice

I always come back to this tea, it's an, excellent choice when you want something a little more exciting than a green, but a bit more nuanced than a black tea. This is a fantastic option at a reasonable price :)

A pleasant and somewhat intense cup
Lynnea – IL – April 11, 2018

The roasted rice in this blend gives the tea a pleasantly intense toasty flavor. It does not overpower the Sencha, but acts as a tasty compliment.
