796 Tasting Notes
Yum! I made a small pot of this, and my espresso drinking husband even requested some: “a big mug of it, please!” So I guess I’ll be making another small pot by the end of this evening. :)
I really do love this tea. I’m a big fan of Genmaicha in general. When I finish up this batch, I’m going to give Samovar’s Ryokucha a try. I’m looking forward to seeing how the two compare.
YUM. I made a strong cup of this tonight (7 balls, 1 cup water, 4 minutes) and added a generous serving of agave and about 1/3 cup almond milk. It Was Incredible. I ended up drinking it as a dessert tea, and it couldn’t have been better.
I’m looking forward to continued experimentation with this one!!
I decided to give this one a try since it was featured on Steepster Select yesterday. I loved that you can visually make out the cardamom, cloves, and pieces of cinnamon along side the green and black tea. The tea, itself, was good, but kind of what I expected… After trying the plain tea, I added agave nectar and almond milk (based on advice from my yoga teacher). As I drank it, I liked the tea more and more. And at the end of the cup I found myself wishing I had another sample. In that cup, I’d boil the tea and use less water so that with the milk it’d be stronger.
I really, really wanted to like this one. I love the idea of it, it seems like a nice thing to have in the fridge, it’s easy to make (with the GIANT tea bag)… but it’s just not my thing. I poured a glass last night and couldn’t even finish it. I have no inclination to go back for another. I guess this one was not meant for me!
