Thank you Shinobicha for giving me a sample of this!

This is my first tea with actual seaweed slipped into it. The dry leaf smells so tasty. I decided to eat some of my favorite Japanese rice snacks with the tea. It was just a great clash of tastiness. This is the most mellow genmaicha I have had. I taste a little seaweed at the very end along with sweetness. I have had kukicha where it was more roasted, and I like this better. Overwell, everything is balanced well.

The second brew, I taste more seaweed! I need some white tuna roll or some seaweed salad STAT!

I love cooking, sleeping, reading, reggae music, and tea. I also enjoying reading about tea, the culture and ceremonies, and the diverse types.

I think most the teas I drink are 80% iced, but on some days, it’s opposite that, especially days off! I can’t believe it took me this long to try different teas. Better now than never!

Reading the reviews help guide me to the right tea. I have been turned on to so many delightful brews.

I am ALWAYS up for swapping. Just PM me.
