It’s been a little while since I’ve had a Genmaicha – at least a week or two! And in that time I’ve consumed a lot of tea… but it isn’t until I get to another Genmaicha that I remember just what I’ve been missing. I love the comforting aroma and taste of the sweet toasted rice.

This is a very nice Genmaicha – sweet and mellow. Just perfect after our shopping excursion earlier today. Just what I needed.

The Purrfect Cup

Oooh shopping. I haven’t been shopping in ages (the grocery store does not count). ;) Tea sounds yummy too!!

You have just reminded me, I like Genmaicha quite a bit. I used to buy it at this nature store but they went out of business or relocated. Anyhow, the rice flavoring and the smokiness in the cup is divine. I would close my eyes and it was as if cooking a pot of rice and while it is steaming, inhale the flavorful scent of the rice and the warmth in the cooking/heating of it. Really nice. Thanks for reminder.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
