This is rich. Almost too rich.

It’s buttery, creamy, smooth, sweet, vegetal, and much fancier then I am used to with my Genmaicha. Geez.. even the rice used here is fancy- delicious nutty, roasted jasmine rice. This cup melts, and, wow, is the second steep ever delicious!

It’s high quality stuff but I like how pedestrian and crude my regular Genmaicha is. I can always have two types of Genmaicha?

Preparation

You NEED two types of genmaicha. At least.

Kasumi no Chajin

I usually have at least 3, and now never want to part with my genmai flavored matcha either! (for a matcha-iri addict it it really something!)

Wow. Verdant teas always sound so amazing that I’m almost afraid to brew them up. I still have a few samples from you that I look at in awe, then put back for another day. :p

Yeah I know what you mean though. I have a bad tendency to hoard them.

DRUM BEATING….BREW IT….BREW IT….BREW IT….drink the tea!

Cavocorax

Hehehe. I will! :P

Ha! Steepster is such a crazy enabler for tea drinking. Don’t let the tiny amount Laoshan Black waste away in that flimsy ziplock bag! :P

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.
