drank Genmai Cha by Adagio Teas
36 tasting notes

Good, but a bit too bitter to be up in my favorites. I steeped for 3 minutes at around 190, so I may need to play with the parameters a few times to get it just right. The toasted rice flavor was very nice, but I would have enjoyed it even more if the bitterness of the green tea was toned down just a tad.

I love flavored teas, especially black “dessert-like” teas, or teas I can make dessert-like with the addition of almond milk and truvia. Yes, I’m that girl that never orders her coffee black, and instead gets the double mocha on ice with whipped soy cream and almond shavings. Hey, that’s what I love, and I’m not afraid to embrace it! I’m on the warpath to sample as many new teas as my budget (and husband) will allow, and am pretty much working my way through the entire Adagio catalog at the moment.

I almost always hate chamomile or any blend with chamomile in it, and have detested every single Earl Grey I’ve tried (sorry…I’ve tried quite a few!).

I am lucky to live and work in the fantastic city of Portland, and I’m vegan.
