Thank you, KallieBoo!
This is one I’ve always been curious about because it seems like an odd mixture. A typically expensive green as a genmaicha. I guess maybe it makes sense, but I’d rather savor gyokuro than try to stretch it into plenty more cups.
It’s not bad though! It’s an interesting sweet and savory mix. First it just tastes like genmaicha, but then there’s a sweetness from the gyokuro.
It is not helping my mood though. My boyfriend already bought plane tickets to go to his brother’s wedding and I have an exam scheduled for 2 1/2 hours before the flight. This professor has the worst exam policy ever…no make ups, only valid documentation gets you…90% of your next exam’s grade as the missed exam’s grade. HOW RIDICULOUS IS THAT?? And my excuse might not even be valid because nobody is even my family member so I’m trying to decide if I say my boyfriend’s my fiance or the bride is my really close cousin or something. UGH.
I should say though that my boyfriend has been my boyfriend for nearly FIVE years so you know, the bride and groom are practically family…just such a rude, vile policy.
