drank Genmaicha by DAVIDsTEA
125 tasting notes

So here is an interesting one…. I got this few months ago, drank it once and was so dissatisfied with it, I put it at the back of my cupboard and forgot about it. The reason? Too much roasted rice, not enough tea, just not my taste I guess. I remember wanting to try it with addition of more green tea but like I said… I forgot about it.

Lo and behold I remembered about it out last night. I steeped about half a teaspoon of it with regular serving of Dragonwell in 8 ounces of water…. and I liked it. I liked it so much that tonight I decided to double the amount. I guess I like the toasted rice filler after all but for me there has to be more tea and less rice.

There are definitely better genmaichas out there :) try Den’s extra green (with added matcha!) sometime! So good…

Thank you, I totally will. I will finish what I have of this one because I do enjoy it with a little extra green tea, but after than I will definitely have to branch out and try other genmaichas out there. :)

If you’ve never shopped at Den’s tea, they do a $5 introduction to Japanese greens sampler, and it comes with a $5 off your next purchase coupon, so it’s basically free!

Oh, that’s awesome! Thank you :)

Bio

It’s been a while since I joined Steepster and I think it’s time to write up a bio.

I’m a stay at home, married mom with 5 kids, most of them grown up. Only one remains with us now, my 7 year old sunshine which I push out of the house to school every morning and it’s not an easy thing to do.

I’m an avid gardener during a growing season and my goal is to grow most of the food we eat and save some for winter too. I’m also an artist and a huge nerd. I read books, I play computer games. My very first game was World of Warcraft (was addicted to it solid for a year, lol), then came Skyrim, Minecraft (with my 7 year old) and few others less memorable along the way.

I began drinking tea on regular basis just over 2 years ago when I decided to kick my morning coffee habit. It wasn’t pretty… I couldn’t function for 3 days straight but survived. A year ago I discovered loose tea and found Steepster… The rest is history.

Some of the staples in my cupboard are Dragonwell green tea, Japanese sencha, Silver Needle white tea, green roobois, darjeeling and pu’erh. I also drink variety of flavored teas for fun and I like to order tisanes and mix them with straight teas for even more variety.

Recently I found out how much I love oolong so will be stocking up on that as well.

There are few other tea lovers in my family: my mom and dad, my oldest daughter, my son and my youngest 7 year old. She loves when I try out different teas and I always have to remember to make enough for her to have a little taste.
