I have a friend who makes a really good honey mead every year and is super protective of her recipe, leaving the magic as a fun mystery. I should have ordered a bottle this year!

When I scooped some of this tea, I got mostly puffed rice and very little tea leaves. Not sure if that is normal for this tea or if I got an odd serving. Once steeped it smells mostly of genmaicha, but there is a little sweetness behind that. It is mostly gen on the sip and a candied honey flavor comes in on the end and lingers into the aftertaste. It has that perfumey hint to the honey that I associate with honey flavoring, not true honey, which is more complex and has a huge sweetness factor to it. This tea is intriguing. Very subtle flavors , but a nice cup and I’d like to try it again with some cream or sugar.

Oh damn I bet that honey mead your friend makes is goooood.

It is! It is more of a cordial than a true mead that you can drink a whole cup of. I have two beehives and look forward to the day that I have a big enough harvest to try my hand at making my own. Or maybe I can trade my friend honey for mead and have her make it!

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
