This was the end of the tea I had. Just a little more than what I needed for a mugful, so I added it in. Plus, it was dusty being the end of the packet. I will leave it in my cupboard because I love genmaicha in general, so I’ll probably go get some more of this next time I’m at the grocery.

I love the way genmaicha smells while steeping.

I slept like crud last night, and had an early conference call this morning. Fortunately, I could be on said call in my jammies at home. With a mug of genmaicha. The timer went off while the call was connecting, so I had a mug for the whole conversation. It made that so much easier to deal with.

Toasty rice, grassy green, delicious. Comforting. Warm. Happy thoughts.

There was more sediment in this mug than normal, but it was totally expected being as it was the last of the packet and I was not awake enough to avoid the dust. In fact, I was having trouble getting the rest of the rice, so I just dumped. Yes, I know, I shouldn’t do that, but I needed tea for this call, so dump I did.

Still relatively new to drinking teas, or so I feel, even though I’ve been at it for several months now.

I’m drinking more and more of different varieties of tea.

It’s been a few months that I’ve been on here. I’ve expanded from greens and flavored teas to now I’m all about the oolongs and some unflavored blacks. I’m mostly drinking unflavored teas now, but there are a few of those flavored ones that have a special place in my heart.

Pu-erh is also something I’ve recently found that I enjoy.

I have four kitties and a spouse.
