I just got mine today! It’s a big day for tea, wheee! I always miss out on the marshmallow genmaicha so I thought I would check this out instead.

So the aroma of this is very strong in the bag. I steeped it for around 3 minutes and it is pretty good. I am getting a lot of nuttiness from the genmaicha and the green tea IS slightly bitter but I think I may have oversteeped mine as well. If you’re a fan of bananas you need to check this one out. The banana flavor is very strong and yes, I am getting a bit of cheesecake, how does Frank do it, I have no idea! It’s almost a little too much for me but I think I’ll try steeping it for less time next and see what happens. The flavors are more prominent as the cup cools. No rating for now.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
