drank Genmaicha by DAVIDsTEA
434 tasting notes

I can’t sleep (again!) 

I’ve got Mr. Right on one side, sleeping deeply… The cat all snuggled next to me on the other side… and the dog, well he wants his share of the pie and he’s trying to squeeze in the middle…I do have a large bed, but did I mention the dog is a Doberman?

So me and my iPad are on Steepster…

This tea:  

Don’t know why, but how often I have this Genmaicha does not equal how much I love it…every time I drink it, I tell myself the same thing, and yet, I can be several weeks without it… 

I had it tonight, and it was gooood!  The thing is, for those who aren’t big fans of green tea, you would probably enjoy this one.  It has none of the vegetal grassy feel usualy associated with greens, but it still has that clean refreshing taste, with a toasted rice twist.  

Perfect tea for meals, great with fish of course…

I had 4 very tasty steeps out of 1 1/2 teaspoon.  

Almost 2am, time to fall in Morphée’s arms… 

(Update : The Dobe is now snoring! It is so wrong, dogs should not be capable of that!)

Oh! didn’t know I had comments on this post, could not have acces to my notices last week…seems to happen once in a while…
Althouh it does make a sweet picture and does look like a movie scene, I’m afraid it’s all too real! I’ve got numb arms and legs to remind me in the morning! But I love my bunch and wouldn’t change a thing, except getting a few more hours of sleep at night! But hey, they can’t be blame for my insomnia!

Bio

Time to update this profile of mine…it’s 2015!!

I am French Canadian, so please forgive me if my English is not always perfect :-/

My relationship with tea in a nutshell:

I’m married to straight Black. I have torrid love affairs with Oolong and Puerh. I party with Green and White occasionally. Flavored are not my BFF, I usually stay away from them.

Love Steepster, a place for tea lovers, where you learn and share with others.

About me:

I am a free spirit, I let people be who they are and expect the same in return.

Books! I love classic literature, but also modern and pretty much anything that captures my attention.

Music is also something I can’t live without… From Bach to Nirvana, my ears know no boundaries…

Animal and nature lover, amateur photographer.

I’ve been drinking tea for as long as I can remember.

Drinking tea is a sensorial experience. The name in itself “Camellia Sinensis” lingers the promess of an adventure for the senses…

Not a big «swapper», but will occasionally. Not because I don’t want to share but because I’m trying not to hoard so much.

Also, I have narrowed down the teas I really like over the years, and I don’t feel the need to try and buy everything the way I used to. (Maybe I have become a tea snob? Sigh…)

My ratings: because I pretty much drink only teas that I judge exceptional, my ratings are usually high. Don’t be shocked to see lots of 90’s and a few 100’s. That’s because I’ve had my share of crapy teas and I’m done with that ;-)

You can find me on Instagram here, I post about my tea sessions mostly, but also about the beautiful nature that surrounds me, and my fury companions :-)
