Sipdown!! (206)

I LOVE my new kettle. The “keep warm” feature is awesome. I brewed Buddha’s Blend and Eggnog & Pralines at 180F and left the kettle while I cooked dinner. As I cooked I got a chance to try Buddha’s Blend and after dumping that I still had water at a perfect temperature to brew this.

Compared to the cherry cheesecake genmaicha I had earlier, this has a bit more flavor. There is a hint of berry if I focus but mostly it is a grassy genmaicha flavor. I am really unimpressed with these especially given Marshmallow Treat is what got me interested in genmaichas in the first place given all its flavor. At least now I can definitively say these are not for me and not wonder if I would like them when I see them on the website. Thank you Scheherazade for sharing this with me and giving me the chance to try this tea.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
