So I’m looking at my notes from the last time I wrote about this tea. Apparently I wasn’t all that impressed with it. Well, things have changed because now I find it deliciously comforting. It’s toasty grains and somehow savory. It’s like the crunchy browned rice at the bottom of the pot. These days, my family uses rice cookers, so no more crunchy browned rice for me, but man, that stuff was tasty. This tea tastes like that. I’m going to miss this tea. That was the last of my bag. :(

I’m working from home this week (Thanks Sandy!) so I’m able to drink down my tea faster. I’m missing my tea at work though.

Throat feeling crappy. :(

Feel better soon!

Claire

Drink some Echinacea tea! I swear by that stuff when I’m getting sick.

Mercuryhime

Thanks guys! I’ll have to look into the tea next time I’m at the store.

LiberTEAS

Oh no! Sorry to hear you’re feeling poorly. I finally forced myself to go to the doctor yesterday. :(

Nik

LiberTEAS, I’ve been worried about you! You’ve been ill for some time now, I’m glad that you finally went to the doctor. Mercuryhime, feel better soon! I got that familiar tickle and soreness in my throat two days ago and attacked it with tea and Airborne. I feel fine now. I hope you’re able to keep the cooties at bay, too!

Mercuryhime

Hey LiberTEAS, it’s funny how as kids our parents have to force us to go to the doctor and now we have to force ourselves. Being a grown up can be a bummer. :) I hope you get better soon! Nik, I’m pouring tea and hot soup all over that sore throat! Hope it works!

Sarah

Feel better soon! I second Claire: echinacea tea works wonders.

About the Tencha-Kuki Houjicha: It sounds similar to genmaicha. I’ll have to try it!

Mercuryhime

It’s really tasty, but not as rice flavored as genmaicha. More toasty grain than anything.

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
