drank Gen Mai Cha by Teaism
74 tasting notes

Oh, Teaism. First you had me with the Chai, and now you throw a wonderfully smooth, tasty Genmaicha over my tastebuds. I am generally a black/milk tea person, but any cup of tea that essentially tastes like liquid Frosted Flakes has my vote. But YOUR genmaicha, Teaism, isn’t quite as cloying as others; it is more subtle, but the toasted rice comes right through. Assertive little things.

I look forward to my next visit to Teaism in DC. I’ve had a bracing black and a gentle green; I want to try so many more!

you totally should. And then send me tea as my finder’s fee. LOL. Seriously – you won’t be disappointed. The food is amazing, too!

Designer, photographer, gardener, and rabid locavore. Tea? I’ll have mine with milk and sugar, please. :)

I adore the silly ostentation of ordering tea in a restaurant. Coffee? Yeah, you get a mug and a saucer of cream packets. Tea? Oh, let us break out the wooden tea box, and get you a tiny little platter with a teapot and a mug and all the accoutrements…

If you are into swapping tea, I’m always happy to ship a sample of my cupboard in exchange for new and interesting teas!
