drank Genmai Cha by Adagio Teas
862 tasting notes

I love, love, LOVE this tea with meals. I love that it is savory. I love that I can drink it unsweetened. I love that it smells so rice-y and looks so very springtime green. I just love it.
I really only like drinking this with food; that is the reason I can’t bring myself to bump up the rating higher. But luckily I have plenty of other stand alones to choose from and can use this to pair with lunches and dinners to my hearts’ content!

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
