drank S'mores Genmaicha by 52teas
349 tasting notes

Am I the only one that can’t say the word “s’mores” without thinking: “Please sir, Can I have s’more”?

I love how dry genmaicha looks so fun with the popped rice, kind of like Lilliputian popcorn. It also makes me think of the Muppets Swedish Chef doing his rendition of the popcorn song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AvDvTnTGjgQ “de poppity corn!” Alright, enough random snapshots through my mind’s eye…onto the review:

When I ordered this tea I wasn’t sure if it was a good idea for me. A couple of years back, I got a ginormous bag of genmaicha for Christmas. I enjoyed it at first but I eventually drank it so often that I grew tired of the taste. In the end I was handing out samples of the dry tea to friends and family just to be able to get through it all, and on more than one occasion I used it as one of my ingredients in a homemade face scrub. Yes, I was literally bathing in the stuff! It was like a bottomless chasm stuffed full of genmaicha – you’d think that would be wonderful, but I’m all about the variety when it comes to tea.

I finally made my way to the bottom of the bag before we moved last summer, at which point I said “it’ll be a cold day in hell before I buy another bag of genmaicha”. But then Frank had to go and make this tea. Roasted Cacao nibs and Marshmallow root?! Sign me up!!! The genmaicha base is evident, but the additional ingredients give this tea just enough depth and character for me not to get the genmaicha nightmares again.

What can I say?…I’m drinking my words, and loving it.

Cavocorax

Hehehe – I do that too.

Glad you are enjoying this. Mine just came TODAY!

jessiwrites

Oooh, and you are in Canada, too… right?

I saw that mine cleared customs on the 19th. I am just so dang impatient.

Ramvling

I’m eagerly awaiting my order~ I only was able to get on this when he reblended it. Dang did this stuff sell out fast.

Sweet Canadian

Me too Jessiwrites! I am also eagerly relating my order….

@Ramvling – Yes, This tea sells out uber-fast! I’m glad I managed to get my hands on it this time around. I hope yours arrives soon.

@jessiwrites – Yep, I’m in Canada I ordered mine on March 05th and it arrived yesterday (March 20th), but I live close to the Canada/US border so that may shave some time off of shipping? Ooooh! How did you find out when yours cleared customs? is there tracking? Hope you get your order soon.

@Cavocorax – I look forward to reading your tealog – I hope you enjoy it too :)

Sweet Canadian

I think everyone’s shipped about the same day, because Frank is busy with other work atm and can’t get things out as soon as they are ordered. I am in London, ON and as far as I know mine hasn’t come today, but our mail is not that good….once my package sat in the postal depot for 3 days before they attempted delivery :(

@Sweet Canadian – I find the postal service is sometimes great where I’m living, and other times it’s a tad slow. I imagine for the most part it would depend on how busy they are. I definetly lucked out this time. Hope you get yours soon

Yes, mine shipped on the 13th. I did get a tracking number, but it wasn’t updated at all between when it left Wichita and when it cleared customs. I have absolutely no idea where it is right now.

Well, I guess I know that it’s somewhere in Canada.

I am also fairly close to the border, but in Saskatchewan.

Sweet Canadian

Mine came today :D It was in the mail when I got home.

canadianadia

@jessiwrites- I never noticed that there was a tracking number before, but I just checked my old email for my order and there it was. Neat-o! Fingers crossed that this feature will improve over time.

@Sweet Canadian – hooray! I look forward to reading your tealog!

That’s my mug! I’ve never really been a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, but I like the fact that this mug is more or less clear. Plus, I can’t help but giggle when I say “ewww …I have Pooh on my mug” and people in the room gawk in horror before realizing I’m talking about Winnie. Am I easily amused? heck yeah!

A little something about my interests? – In no particular order, I love tea, makeup, paper crafting (card making), home renovations, and gardening.

As a rule, I tend to drink my tea without adding anything, but if that doesn’t work for me, I indulge in the fact that rules are meant to be broken. Yep! I’m such a rebel…sometimes I even color outside the of lines :P
