902 Tasting Notes
What I do for my friends. I’ve been up since 5, helping my hetero-life partner move into her new, posh, downtown apartment and out of the pigsty, run-down apartment she’s been in. We’ve taken a break, and I’m having a quick cuppa.
To top all this off, her parents are bringing help in the form of a man they want to hook Katie up with. At least he’s meeting the best friend, and scariest one of all, up-front and will know what he’s getting himself into!
At our conference last week, one of the vendors was giving away samples of this at her booth. She gave me a handful to try.
Oh. My. God. It’s sweet. Jaw-locking sweet. Painfully sweet. The taste itself is actually not too bad once you get past the sweet (okay, the aftertaste isn’t too bad), but it’s way, way too sweet for me.
I’ve got two more samples of this…who wants them?
Having this one again after seeing TeaEqualsBliss’s review and high rating. I’m not really getting the amount of pineapple that she got…but, again with this pot, the first thing I taste is the Genmaicha (at least, I think it’s that, it’s a toasted rice taste). That kind of crowds everything else out for me. I’ve had Genmaicha before, but really don’t remember it being this bold. Will try again with a shorter steep later.
