Had a killer craving for popcorn or pringles tonight, and normal genmaicha just didn’t seem toasty enough, and Lapsang/russian caravan wasn’t what I was looking for, so I figured it was a great time to try the pouch of genmai-houjicha I got a couple months ago.

I have to be in a very specific mood to be able to enjoy genmaicha or houjicha. I just have a hard time appreciating them for the lovely things they are!

I’m REALLY impressed with this one! I was expecting a crisper feel to the cup, but found myself swept up in a wonderful butteryness instead! It’s like drinking buttered toast, a bit more body than a normal genmaicha, but something different, that I can’t put my finger on, than a plain houjicha.

I really need to be in this sort of mood more often, so I can enjoy this on a more regular basis, but it really does take a very specific sort of mood for me to be able to enjoy both genmaicha and houjicha, and I feel a bit guilty for it!

Agh, I keep forgetting that this is one I want to try. Must make a note!

Part of the Heffalumps and Woozles brigade!
I’m also a tea addict. Oolong, Pu’ehr, and Lapsang Souchong are my favourites. I share tea with my pony, Java (Competes under the name “Bear With Me”). I’m pretty sure I’m the only person ever to buy matcha JUST for their horse, haha!

I’m on the hunt for the PERFECT peach tea. Something juicy that screams “I am PEACH!” when you take a sip. Ideally a Green, White, Oolong, or Yellow base (I find peach black teas to be too much tannin not enough peachy goodness). Suggestions are appreciated!
