drank Razzleberry Genmaicha by 52teas
578 tasting notes

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect with this one, and I have to say that I’m pretty happy with it. I had my first steep in my Timolino for my afternoon classes, and I’m just enjoying the second steep here as I prepare for my lab tomorrow morning.

The thing I like the most about this one is that you can still taste the non-genmaicha flavours in the second steep. I found the other flavoured genmaichas had only the first steep with flavour, then it was essentially regular genmaicha from there on out.

Both the raspberry and blackberry are evident and not fake tasting at all. The scent of the dry tea seemed like the flavours might come out too overwhelming, but they seem to be just right. This will be a nice switch up from my normal genmaicha every so often.

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), travel, science, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not always in the mood for them. Greens and pu’erhs I’m working on, but they’re coming along at a snail’s pace. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino). Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss, to be continued…
