I love Hojicha and I love Genmai Cha, so I thought I’d really enjoy this. And I did, but not as much as I’d hoped. It could have been that it was 12am and I’d had way too much to drink at a party or that I was beat tired trying to watch a less than stellar SNL, but either way, it was only so so. It had a nice butteriness to it, but was missing the slight salty roasty flavor I love in my Hojicha. I’ll try it again before rating it. Maybe with a little less prefunking.

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
