From 52teas

Tea of the Week for August 3, 2015!

This tea was mostly about me wanting to create a mango tea that was just a little different. I found myself wondering what a Mango Genmaicha might taste like. So, I decided that I should make one.

This is just what it sounds like: my blend of Organic Genmaicha plus Organic Genmaicha with Matcha flavored with organic, all-natural mango flavor and tossed with chunks of organic, freeze-dried mango. YUM! Simple yet delicious.

Large size is approximately 2 ounces.

Ingredients: Organic Japanese Teas with Popped Rice, Organic Freeze-Dried Mango & Organic, All-Natural Flavor.

Recommended Brewing: 1 tsp tea to 12 oz. 175 degree water. Steep 2 minutes. Allow tea to cool five minutes after brewing for best flavor.

Drank this last week at work; can’t recall the specifics of this last cup, but I’m not a huge fan of the tea. It’s ok, and I do like the underripe mango flavouring, but I think the matcha is a bit too much for me in general. I think I’d prefer just genmaicha, and more creamy flavourings (probably more akin to the mango sticky rice version, which I don’t believe I tried… although I could be mixing these two up).

Part of a joint order with OMGsrsly, which I forgot about for months until I found my portioned ziplock hidden in my closet.

Mango flavour paired with toasted rice is very tasty and satisfying as long as I don’t remember Marshmallow Treat and start craving that instead.

… And I ran out of both my flavoured genmaicha blends within a week of getting back home from Japan. I’m struggling oh so much.

Lack of flavored genmaicha makes me sad. I actually ordered the three-tier genmaicha tin from the 52 teas kickstarter and it got lost on route between my dad and I :(

52Teas

@VariaTEA – I’m so sorry about the teas getting lost in the mail. That’s a bummer!

On the upside, I have made it a point to start making a flavored Genmaicha every other month. :)

Sil

awesome liberteas….now can you fix the exchange rate? hahaha

Christie Lee

Wow that sounds fantastic! I’ve only tried strawberry genmaicha before- by metropolitan tea company, and its one of my favorite fruity teas for sure.

52Teas

Sorry, I can’t do anything about the exchange rate. Truly, I wish I could. I also wish I could do something about the crazy high prices to ship to Canada because I would love for those to be lower. Back when I was doing business as LiberTEAS and shipping my teas out – the rates to ship to Canada were at most a dollar or so more than what it would cost to ship the same package throughout the US so I didn’t even have different shipping costs for Canada back then. That was probably the biggest shocker for me when I started shipping as 52Teas – just how much it costs now to ship to Canada!

Sil

yeah, it’s pretty awful

Fjellrev

The shipping costs make me quite sad, too. I’d definitely place a 52Teas order, and with other American tea companies, if the rates were better.

Evol Ving Ness

Yeah, given the crappy exchange AND THEN, the exorbitant shipping fees on top of that gives the impression that we are being penalized for being Canadian.

Fjellrev

That’s what we get for being maple syrup-guzzling, hockey-obsessed hosers. I mean, we get what we deserve!

Plunkybug

Mmmmm, this sounds yum! I need to have a look at 52Teas again…

Sil

i would love to be supporting a number of US companies but it’s challenging and i HAVE a tea mule. So i try to at least promote verbally even if i can’t do it with $

Sil

…at least sales help bring the price down to “regular price” for us…then it’s just the shipping factor… Of course the canada post strike is going to make things interesting around here for sure

Evol Ving Ness

Canada Post strike? Shazbat!

Fjellrev

I had no idea about a CP strike. Wasn’t there just one a 3-4 years ago?

It’s also annoying when companies don’t always have everything in stock, or don’t have enough selection to justify making an order. I’m not going to pay the crazy shipping on top of the already insane prices just for a couple teas.

52Teas

I do have sales occasionally – I can’t afford to do that too often though – Plus, I have my daughter to answer to. (She’s the boss of this outfit.) I don’t want to put her in the position of feeling that she has to fire her mother.

Evol Ving Ness

Exactly, Fjellrev. If I make a cross border order, it is going to be a big one to justify the shipping expense.

I can understand your position, 52teas. Also, the very nature of your business means that you can offer only a very few of your teas on sale at any particular time. Clearly, they are going to be the ones which are not moving as quickly as the more popular or desirable ones. Sucks for us Canadian shoppers.

52Teas

@Fjellrev – our comments must have crossed – I didn’t see yours before or I would have commented on it.

By the very nature of our business – we can’t keep all the teas in stock all the time. We’re called “52Teas” because we put a new flavor out there every week. We’d need a warehouse the size of Costco to be able to keep all the teas in stock all the time. We do have a large selection but we only make small batches of every tea that we create to keep the flavors fresh and maintain space within my tea studio to house the teas until they sell.

Fjellrev

That is totally understandable in your case, 52Teas! I used to order from 52Teas years ago when it was still reasonable cost-of-the-tea-itself-plus-exchange-rate-plus-shipping-wise but I found that I just simply cannot afford/justify it anymore. I agree, Evol, that in this case, in order to get the more popular/desirable ones, you’d have to make more frequent/smaller orders, but that means paying so much extra for shipping every time. It’s awesome that shipping is free with $75+ orders, but even then, it works out to $17-18/50g even if you commit to the larger 1.5-2 ounce pouches right off the bat.

Evol Ving Ness

“I can understand your position, 52teas. Also, the very nature of your business means that you can offer only a very few of your teas on sale at any particular time. "

I was referring to when you are having a sale. Perhaps my meaning didn’t come through.

Evol Ving Ness

Also, Fjellrev, I think the large sizes are now 50 grams. Uncertain of current prices.

Sil

@evol – yes there’s a 90% chance of a CP strike starting July 2. Our corporate team is on it as it affects tons of what we do.

52Teas

The 50g price is “usually” $10. If it’s a more expensive base, the price will adjust accordingly.

@Fjellrev: I understand. The prices have changed because the quality has increased – I’m using better quality teas (and other ingredients) than were previously being used.

CrowKettle

So I should order tea and stuff well before July 2nd. Got it.

Sometimes I contemplate getting one of those border mail boxes for about $5 per parcel, but I’d rather try a group order or find a way to justify a large order for free shipping- hard to do with limited, specialized companies like 52teas for the reasons Fjellrev stated. It’s tough right now.

Evol Ving Ness

Thanks, Sil.

I personally enjoy and support that you’ve improved the quality of teas and ingredients, 52teas. The result is a better product which is better for everyone all round.

Evol Ving Ness

And as CrowKettle states, it is tough right now.

I haven’t been craving green teas much lately, but tonight I had a searingly hot butter chicken roti for dinner. This has been an excellent match.

Mango. Roasted Rice. Green Tea. Win.

The mango in this tea is the fresh and juicy fruit but also the slightest bit of bitter peel.
Very enjoyable cup.

I really need to reach for it far more often.

I really like this tea. The aroma is wonderful. It brews up a really nice lime green and has a fruity mango taste on a slightly sweet green tea base. The base is really good. It is bright and slightly savory. I taste the genmaicha, but there is a healthy portion of green tea and matcha. The toasted rice flavor is much more subdued than I’m used to in genmaicha. I love this base and can’t wait to try other teas with this base.

I’ve had a fondness for genmaicha since WorldCon 2013, when I got fairly liquored up, then headed to the Japan party and had the most wonderful cold green tea with a toasted, nutty flavor. That tea is probably what kept me sober enough to be able to drive back to my hotel at a somewhat reasonable time. And it was freaking delicious.

This takes that toasted, nutty green tea and adds mango to it. I love mango, but there are definitely different types (I’m talking flavor more than variety here). There’s the ultra-ripe, sweet mango that’s like a dessert in itself. This mango is greener, not overly sweet, with almost a hint of tartness and mango skin (I wish I could find green mango more often. There are some things it works perfectly in, where the sweeter mangoes I find in the store just don’t quite cut it). It blends beautifully with the rice and green tea, adding the mango flavor without overly sweetening the green tea.

I think I need to get a larger pouch of this if it’s still available. This is another winner for me from 52Teas
