drank Toasted Rice by Numi Organic Tea
1296 tasting notes

Genmaichas are the toastiest teas around. They have a great nutty, roasted, toasted, buttery flavor, and maybe something a bit burnt but in a good way. Numi’s genmaicha is all of these. There is also a silky texture left in your mouth. The tea bag is VERY full. I didn’t see very much toasted rice here, and usually genmaichas have popcorn in them, which is fun and should be essential. ( I think the “fun” came from Troy on NBC’s Community saying “Kettle corn’s a fun time snack!” Watch that show! Clearly it stays in my head.) The steep color is a light green. I think with a genmaicha, the toastier the better, but you have to be careful with this one. Oversteeping will make it almost unbearably bitter. But this is GOOD and I must invest in a genmaicha, even if it isn’t this one.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
