From CrowKettle who got it from Fiddling.

Yep, I still do like this tea. Needs more lemon, but it’s an older sample that’s been sitting around in a plastic baggie… not exactly the best for a flavoured tea. It’s more seaweedy than the Murchie’s variety, and tastes a little toasty in comparison. There isn’t nearly as much dust in my cup, but the leaves aren’t as tightly curled either. Hmm… gunpowder genmaicha. That sounds like something I’d be interested in! This tea looks like it’d take a resteep. Not sure I will, but it’s a good thing to know.

Anyways, I’m reading this:

and drinking this tea.

Yep, this is a good combination.

I love the notes on the provenance of the tea. ;-)

I had to look it up! The way teas get traded around is awesome. :)
