Uh oh. I’m the first to write a note.
Before steeping, mostly I can smell the AMAZING orange peel that Verdant has sourced this fall. Steeped, it’s spicy and orangey. With no sweetener, it tastes like genmaicha – toasty rice, but with an interesting spice blend in the background rather than green tea. I used a heaping tsp of tea in an 8 oz teacup, but I might try using more in the future. Or less.
I added a wee spoonful of honey.
It’s just ok. I don’t think I’d search it out again because I don’t care for the coriander seeds. The rest of the blend is pretty good, and it’s nice to have a non-caffeinated tea around. But.
