Recent Tasting Notes
For National Popcorn Day on the 19th.
Finishing this one today and I feel the same about it as I did the last time I tried it. It’s very bland and watery. It does have that toasted rice aroma but not really much else going for it. Maybe it’s the age, I don’t know, but I’m glad to be finished with it.
Flavors: Toasted Rice
The smell is roasted popcorn goodness but the taste is unfortunately lacking. I was hoping for something buttery, but the flavor here is watery instead. Maybe I used too little leaf or maybe it’s just too old, not sure.
Flavors: Popcorn, Roasted

Ahh… the weekend. Lazing about on the couch with my tea and my knitting, watching Casper.
I’m starting on knitted Christmas gifts for my family. I’ve decided this year to just knit several things that I would want to keep, then put them in one combined box to send to my mother, sister, and grandmother (who are always together for Christmas morning) and let them each choose which items they want. So I’ve just started on the first thing – a herringbone stitch hat in lovely autumnal colors. ❤
This tea is from my swap with ashmanra.
It’s been a while since I’ve had a plain ol’ genmaicha. I’m not sure why, it’s one of my favorite types of tea. This one is simple but tasty. I can’t taste the green tea much – it does have a bit of a dry autumn leaf flavor though. Mostly it’s sweet and toasty rice, which I like very much. I’m getting a bit of an oat flavor too, which makes it taste a bit like a very lightly sweetened granola.
Flavors: Autumn Leaf Pile, Oats, Sweet, Toasted Rice
