drank Rumchata Genmaicha by 52teas

This was one of the teas I was hoping for in the 52Teas mystery bag sale and it happened! Nice! I’ve never actually tried Rumchata or Horchata but they sound amazingly delicious. There are a few actual almonds in the blend, not sure how much flavor almonds can have on a tea, especially a tea that isn’t boiled. To me, this tea is eggnog all the way! Very sweet! A little nutty, surprisingly not a lot of cinnamon, though I saw quite a few pieces of cinnamon, and I made sure an almond was in the infuser. It’s very warming, desserty, satisfying. Perfect with the toasty genmaicha. Love it. It seems like a wintery drink for sure. As it cools, the rum flavor appears, not like I’m used to rum flavor! I’m usually just tea drunk. I won’t say any more about it, since I’m not sure if they will delete this tea from Steepster, as I guess someone annoyingly sued 52Teas for making this blend.
Steep #1 // 20 min after boiling // 1 min steep
Steep #2 // 20 min after boiling // 3 min steep

Flavors: Eggnog, Rum

I have had a tea before where the almonds were a carrier for the added flavor, like a sponge. They were no good for eating even after steeping because of all the added flavors.

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

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!
