White this is automatically a bagged tea, it comes in surprisingly attractive, cheesecloth-like bags, beautifully stitched and unfortunately small. They don't really give the tea room to expand properly as I steep at 175° for three minutes, but I get a vibrant green liquor with a strong enough scent that I'm not too worried.

This sencha and ginkgo blend tastes exactly like you'd expect. It has the sweet, minty, herbally flavour of ginkgo. The green tea is somewhat balanced, and though it could play a bit more of a central role, it provides a nice base for the added flavour. And that's about all there is to it, which is fine, because that's all I expect.

The elephant in the room? The occasional cup of this is unlikely to do anything for your memory, so as usual, I can't recommend this based on reputed health benefits. But I can recommend it based on the taste, which is decidedly satisfying.

Another big unfortunate for this blend is that it's pretty hard to buy. Since Hari doesn't sell through their website, you have to get this through a third party. For me, that's just more trouble than it's worth. So what's the verdict? If I saw this on a store shelf, there's a good chance I'd grab a box, but otherwise I wouldn't go too far out of my way.
