Genmaicha Matcha-iri is a unique blend of Sencha tea, toasted rice and Matchat tea. Powdered Matcha lightly covers the Sencha tea leaves and the rice, thus defining the refreshing and sweet taste of the blend. Thanks to the rice, this traditional blend has a full and stimulating taste, which nevertheless does not overwhelm the sweet taste of the green tea, but merely rounds it off.
Dragon Well green tea (Long Jing) is commonly regarded as one of China's top ten teas, and is often served to visiting heads of state. During the Ming Dynasty, it became very popular and during the reign of Emperor Shunzhi in the Qing Dynasty, the Emperor’s love for this tea meant that it was frequently presented by petitioners as a royal tribute.
A first flush Darjeeling with a slightly darker than typical mix of leaf colors (greyish yellow tips, with moderate olive brown to olive brown leaf pieces) that produce a strong orange yellow liquor. Amazingly good quality/price ratio. It's smooth and round, complex, sweet, and very fruity. In terms of oxidation, it falls somewhere between green and black tea but we can hardly call it an Oolong tea.
