drank S'mores Genmaicha by 52teas
156 tasting notes

Last night Rick and I watched Life of Pi…one of my favorite books ever and I bawled like a baby when Richard Parker was sick. Anyway, I got up to make tea because my life has been seriously lacking in the tea department lately (I should never allow myself to be so busy that I say that again). He asked for a cup which is crazy rare and I made him Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake (score! he loved it!)

I made this for myself, I’ve had 2 cups of the Marshmallow Genmaicha and over the past month or so, genmaicha has started become my comfort tea. I don’t know genmaicha well enough yet to really taste the flavors but they were subtle and warm and complemented the coziness of the rice while balancing the grassiness of the green tea itself. I put a few pieces of rock sugar in this but I think I like it plain much better. I’m excited to read everyone else’s reviews and then have another cup and see how my tastes adjust.

This tea sounds amazing. I need to read that book too.

Stephanie

The book is even better than the movie :)

The book is worlds better, but I loved both. The book just has more detail and I felt I got to know Pi better on the pages.

Bio

Born and raised in Connecticut, went to college in Vermont, and moved back to work after a year of service.

I love sweet, decadent, desserty teas the most but I also appreciate a strong refreshing cup of green or white tea. I recently started a matcha smoothie morning, sometimes mate or black tea, then black tea and rooibos throughout the day, and whatever my little heart desires most when I get home from work!

I’m obsessed with Della Terra, DAVIDs, and 52teas because they have the best dessert teas but also have a selection of some more straight things too. Recently tried Simpson and Vail and LOVE them too!!

I don’t have a rating system, I just kind of guess. I think I should make a rating system…

85-100 I want this in my cupboard always
75-85 I like it but I’m not rushing out to buy more immediately
60-75 Probably not going to want more than the sample
40-60 I don’t like this tea, I wouldn’t recommend it, and I won’t drink it again
0-40 This wasn’t even worth the sip.

Ok let’s try that for a bit now.
