I was super excited to try this one! Another tea from a swap with Stephanie :D!! I’m not sure what went wrong with this…I either did not steep long enough, or over leafed it and the genmaicha is too over powering…? This is however my first encounter with Genmaicha, and I am quite happy. I was very intimidated by just the looks of it. After steeping it smelled like pan fried rice with a little hint of sweetness and a lot of smokiness. And the taste to me, tasted exactly how it smelled. I am sad that I could not pick up the marshmallow root and cacao nibs. So… I decided to add sugar. It brought out the marshmallow flavor a tad bit, so why not at cream? THERE’S THE MARSHMALLOW! All in all it tastes like a roasted marshmallow and I am fine with that. Stephanie gave me 1 oz to work with so I will continue experimenting and will not cross this one off my list quite yet. Thank you Stephanie for letting me experience all these new flavors. Your 52 teas were the first 52 teas I have ever tried :D. I had a order come in a couple days ago but have yet to open them because I wanted to get to your swap first:)

Hi! I am a 20 year-old from Salinas, California. I attended school in Monterey and played softball for my JC. I recently moved to San Luis Obispo, CA where I got a job as a full time baker and I LOVE my job! I have always loved to bake and cook since I was young and actually started my own cupcake business in highschool to help pay for my senior year as well as pay my way through college. Once I moved my cupcake business was put on hold, but I still love what I’m doing now. I love to work with children and hope to transfer soon to a college for child development or family psychology. I would also love to go to culinary school! I have a lot of things I want to do and am determined to do them! I am a huge tea enthusiast. I love to read about tea. Learn about tea. Make tea. Drink tea. Taste new flavors.

I am also very big on reading and always enjoy a good read. If you ever have any reccomendation never be afraid send it my way!

I am really excited to be a part of this tea community and can’t wait to trade tips, teas, recipes and treats!

PM me with any of the above and I can’t wait to meet you all!
