This is the last one in the ML sample pack I got. Damn.

I was careful with brewing this one but it still turned out slightly bitter and astringent. Other than that it’s a pretty basic green tea.

drank Genmaicha by Ujinotsuyu

I drank this at a sushi place and really enjoyed it. It’s more of less my first experience with genmaicha, and even though this is a pretty basic grocery store brand (I asked the server) I’m quite impressed.

The roasted grain flavour is distinct but at the same time it doesn’t overpower the food it’s paired with. If anything it enhanced the taste of the sushi.

Had it with milk. In some ways it’s almost too much for the tea as the milk seems to cover some of it’s more subtle notes present.

Preparation
Boiling

The Ceylon tea is a little on the bitter side, but the slight hint of vanilla and sweet grenadine was nice.

Meh, there was barely any vanilla flavour to speak of. The boyfriend likes it though.

Preparation
Boiling

Agreed! None of the flavors I’ve tried are any good at all. I have a 4oz. tin of the cin-apple rooibos up for a swap on Adagio’s chat site. Nothing beats plain ole rooibos in my opinion…at least thus far.

drank Chai Spice by Stash Tea Company

Had a cup with milk this morning. Not really a fan – too cinnamony no matter what I do to it – so I’m trying to drink it up so I can get something I like better.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
