drank Razzleberry Genmaicha by 52teas

I was recently reminded that I still have a bit of this left. Since I’ve been on a cold brew kick, that’s exactly what I did with this tea. The tea had a very strong genmaicha toasty taste at first followed immediately by a mixed berry (mostly raspberry) flavor afterward. Not sure how to say this better, but the flavors seemed really sharp. Maybe some sweetener of some sort would help mellow it out and blend together? Not really sure cause I never really add anything to my teas, but maybe it is worth trying out.

Bio

I’m a California girl temporarily located in Boston for school (brrr). I only recently got into teas because I’ve never really liked coffee (too bitter), but I have been a daily barley tea drinker since I was little.

Through some timid tastings and exploring, I so far like:
-Japanese green teas (genmaicha, hojicha, sencha, etc)
-Oolongs! Especially more roasty/darker ones
-English Breakfast teas
-Fruity teas (peach, apple, strawberry, other berries)

NOT a huge fan of rooibos, heavily artificial tasting teas, or anything gingery or peppery, but I’m trying to keep an open mind and taste everything that I can!

I’m trying to sample more straight teas and have been having pretty awesome discoveries so far. Thank goodness for sample sizes!

My tentative rating system:
90-100: Woohoo! I’m loving it, and I’m definitely restocking when I get the chance and/or crying when I’m out.

80-90: Yum! I’ll try to restock if it fits in my budget when I run out.

70-80: Probably would not buy again, but it was nice enough to finish the cup.

50-70: Would not choose this tea for myself if given the situation, but would not reject it if someone offered it to me and would gulp down politely.

50 or less: Nope. Don’t care to taste that tea again, sorry!

I’m always down to swap, so send me a message if anything in my cupboard is calling your name!
