drank Matcha Kirara Rice by Lupicia
911 tasting notes

Ah, the last of the free teabags! I feel somewhat accomplished today in working on getting my tea under control. Sure, I’ve got a bit to go to finish off all of my one- and two-cups-worth-of-leaves teas that I have have, but I’ve made progress! And had 6 different teas today! Why, no! I’m not caffeinated at all!

Samovar has ruined me for any genmaicha + matcha. This one is just plain and boring. No thick, creamy flavor. Just a murky cup of neon green, puffed rice tasting, thinnish tea. I want more punch! I want more creaminess! I want Ryokucha.

Meh.

ETA: As it cools, it almost tastes like I made this with funky tasting water. Which I didn’t. So that would be the tea. And even though the flavor seems weak, the bottom dregs of the cup were bitter. Yeah, that takes if from a ‘meh’ to something slightly unhappier.

GOLDEN MOON TIME! dance

YAY!!!!! Now I just have to decide what to have… But the Zojirushi is on 175 so something with that temp (since I’m impatient).

The comment here about the Zojirushi made me laugh…I find myself doing the same dance…‘okay…I can have this one and this one, and then I’m going to be held over long enough to heat it up, probably..’

It seems like it’s the time of year to clear out small amounts of tea. Several of it seem to be doing in it. New Year’s resolution? Or desire to buy more tea? =)

Auggy

MORE TEA! WHEE!!!!
I actually try to do this every so often but this is the most successful I’ve been to date. Mostly, I just ignore the teas I don’t love and they just sit in my pantry and take up space. Or I save the ones that I love and don’t want to run out of so they just sit there and get old. But now I will drink them ALL!!!!

Okay, probably not. But I’m trying!

Okay, I do the exact same things – erie.

YEAAAAAAAH! I have ruined genmaicha + matcha for Auggy! IIII have ruuuuuined Auuuuuggy! IIIII have ruuuuuuuined Auuuuuuggy!

I mean. Cough. I’m sorry. I guess technically, Samovar has. It can sing the song of ruin. Take it away, Sammy!

[Can you tell that it is late?! And yet I can’t stop! I don’t have to be anywhere or do anything tomorrow except bake cookies, so I DON’T CARE!]

Auggy

Nah, you can take credit for the ruination… after all, you sent me the tea. I never would have picked it out of Samovar’s lineup as something to try. But now? <3

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
