drank Gyokuro Genmaicha Green Tea by Teavana
1195 tasting notes

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.

Can you take the exam earlier in the day maybe? It’s not a make up if you don’t miss it right? :(

Actually five years together makes you common law husband and wife so you can use that. Look up the law where you are to be sure though :D

Interesting! I’m gonna have to look that up.
I realized finally the easiest thing to do is to just drop it for another class. She specifically has “nonrefundable plane tickets” in the syllabus as not a valid excuse so Monday I’ll go switch them around. Hopefully. There’s really only one class at the same time that I can take but I REALLY don’t want to be in this crazy woman’s class.
