Another sipdown. Sample thanks to CrowKettle!

I decided to have a green tea tonight before I move onto herbals (or maybe Vanilla Comoro).

This genmaicha is so nice. I accidentally steeped it for about 5 minutes, but it turned out so well. Sweet, toasted rice. Mmm. The sample is pretty old, so it’s really well aired out. There’s no chemical anything to it.

Now that my area has a tea mule (thanks!) I would consider ordering from 52Teas. Here’s hoping that everything I want ends up available at the same time!

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 5 min, 15 sec

Yeah, this one is very forgiving regarding steeping parameters. Hard to mess up!

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
