drank Laoshan Genmaicha by Verdant Tea
148 tasting notes

Having a cup of this to unwind after a long day of school. I love the toasty flavor of genmaicha. When I was a young girl we always had tea in the house, and my mom was really fond of green and white tea. I think that actually made her a progressive tea drinker for back then (late 80s/early 90s). Some cups of tea remind me of curling up on the couch with a book and a cup of tea, watching the rain outside and listening to it splash against the roof.

Good genmaicha is one of those teas. I have really enjoyed all of the teas I’ve tried from Verdant and I think the quality is excellent for the price.

Bio

I mostly drink straight tea, and some of my favorites are green teas and oolongs. I almost always have some sencha and tieguanyin in my tea cupboard (and if I run out, awesome, an excuse to buy tea). I do like some flavored teas, but can’t stand really sugary stuff so if it’s very sweet I probably won’t like it. I can’t drink milk so all my reviews are of tea without milk and sugar!
I’ve been getting into puerh the last few months.

Outside of Steepster I’m an English Lit major, and will FINALLY be graduating after the Fall 2013 semester. After that I plan on applying for graduate school to obtain a Master’s in Library Science. Currently I work as a student assistant in the Archives and Special Collections department of my school’s library.
I also like reading (of course) and playing video games when I have time for them.

I’m happy to send samples to anyone in the US or Canada. Just ask. :)
