4026 Tasting Notes
thanks for sharing this one with me dexter this one isn’t too shabby but like most genmaicha’s…it tastes like genmaicha to me. neither better, nor worse than any that i’ve had. So a cup i enjoyed drinking but nothing ZOMG MUST have, since i don’t have a lot of room for genmaicha in my cupboard…ok so i room for two. nina’s and verdant’s black one haha
I tried this one as a cold brew as well, and while i like it a bit more than this hot brewed, i think this is just not the tea for me. Conceptually i really like it, but in execution there’s something slightly off about this one. However, appreciate the share MissB because i love trying all the teas!
i tried this cold brew since MissB was kind enough to send me a enough for a couple silsized cups. Cold brew this is even tastier EXCEPT for that sweetness…which i wish i could place and that comes across as really artificial. I figured if it’s not sweetner then it’s some form of the lemon. I think this is pretty tasty though.
thank you missB! this is another delight that was sent my way. This is a tasty sugar, nougatty tea. I think i’d prefer this as a black base tea but on the whole it’s a delicious tasting tea that was really nice with dinner + fringe.
Oh man..also…i had the best lemon bluberry cake today with our lunch out…i’m still dreaming about it..lemon custard thingy on top…blueberry layers…fluffy white cake..meringue on the top sorta…soooooo good.
Final Count: 156 (at least 6 teas in tomorrow’s sipdown!)
sipdown! but this will be back in my cupboard in future…oh yes. Not as much tea drinking today as i am pooped from the walking we did today. I was breaking in new shoes as well in prep for our treking about vancouver so i’m ready for bed. this might be one of my favourite oolongs….which is saying a lot since oolongs are oo-wrong!
this was my out and about tea today. Seriously, best weekend in a long time. My other half was off so we slept in, had breakfast together and then went for a 5 hours walk. Just out enjoying the sun, the day, spending time together being “out.” I got to buy some pants for walking/being active AND we may have found a writing desk that we can use in the house so that i’m not at the dining room table when i work from home with cords all over the place. We went out for lunch, stopped at the liquor station and had a grand ol’ day. And this was my tea for doing it with. :)
this is one of the teas that missB sent my way. It smells quite lovely with the lemon and the addded spice. Drinking it up though, was a different sort of experience. There wasn’t as much lemon as i figured there might be and the spice left a weird taste in my mouth. I’m cold brewing the rest of my sample to see if that makes a difference in the taste:)
