From Palais des Thes

This surprising blend of Bancha tea, toasted rice and puffed corn is very thirst quenching and pairs well with a savory meal. When steeped, it produces a delicious fragrance and a flavor of roasted grains, making it very popular among people who are not used to green tea.

Many thanks to the Good Lady Angrboda for this, my tea of the afternoon (there was no tea of the morning as toddler had me up at 7:30 am for a bowl of cereal and I then convinced him to go back to bed and woke up again at 11:30). Rowan’s fever is gone today but I am super tired and still have ear thing. Sooo no special Orchid Oolong or Golden Fleece for me today pout

This however sounded good to me, which is odd as I didn’t like the one genmaicha I’ve tried (Teavana, but what do they know?). What encouraged me is that it is with Bancha and not Gyokuro and I figured the flavors would meld better than be such a huge contrast between green and toasty. Plus it is from Le Palais Des Thes and I have heard good things about them.

The smell brewing still isn’t my favorite, burnt popcorn and Kashi, but the taste isn’t bad and it’s even better with food. It’s surprisingly buttery! Genmaicha is definitely a unique cultural beverage, but not one that I am ever likely to get into. ::shrug:: Thanks Miss Ang, for giving me a better Genmaicha experience!

I’m glad you enjoyed it! I don’t really care for the stuff myself, and the last time I tried giving some to the boyfriend, he ended up trying SO HARD to diplomatic about it afterwards that I knew not to do it again. :)

Palais des Thés Advent Calendar – Day 6

It’s interesting to me that PDT has so many straight teas in this calendar. I would never order a straight tea from them, as I consider them to be more of a flavored tea company. But I won’t ever turn my nose up at a genmaicha!

Wow, this is surprisingly sweet! The bancha is mild with notes of grass and dry leaves. I always find bancha to be a comforting green tea because it reminds me of autumn. There’s a little touch of umami, but no bitterness or astringency at all. And, of course, the toasted rice is delicious. I’m not sure whether the sweetness is coming from the tea or the rice, but it’s clear and crisp, reminding me of cool stream water.

This is much better than I expected it to be. So comforting and delicious!

I’m sick. :(
I had two different sicks in a row. Last weekend I had a sore throat. That got better and now I’m all sniffly.
Had this classic comfort tea yesterday. I forgot how tasty genmaicha is. Sometimes you forsake your old favorites for shiny new things.

Hope you feel better soon.

Thanks! Getting pampered by hubby now. I guess there are benefits. :)

Your note makes me think about a Guy Clark country song called “Stuff That Works.” About comfort items: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Ot035kSVt0

A classic Genmaicha tea, with a crisper note of rice than many other brands. The perfect tea if you enjoy this particular Japanese style of tea. I love it with sushi and its pretty tasty iced too.
