drank Laoshan Genmaicha by Verdant Tea
8951 tasting notes

I’m pretty sure this is the first genmaicha that I’ve tried. I’m also fairly certain that’s what prompted me to order this in sample size sonce verdant started doing that. I’m not a huge fan of lighter teas, so i’m always hesitant on making larger purchases of those types of tea.

On to the tea! The scent on opening the tea is lovely. Once brewed, it smells like popcorn to me. Fresh wonderful popcorn that isn’t found in movie theatres…the kind my parents used to make in a pot on the oven. Though there’s a hint of “sweet” in the scent as well as it lingers.

The tea is a lovely light yellow colour.

The taste… this is a lovely tea which i’m sure i’m going to get distracted with as I work. Theres a sweet taste…the taste of corn, underlying hints of a vegetal taste but super light. Hmmmm i think i’m going to go focus on this tea…though i have to say the aroma is mkaing me hungry. While i’m not a fan of a lot of lighter teas….I’d order this one again. This is really quite delightful!

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
