My first genmaicha…I don’t know how I feel about it yet, so I’m not going to rate it just yet. I love the caramel and vanilla notes in this tea! I am not sure, however, if I care for the ricey aftertaste…

I am going to try again in a few days, and see how I feel about it then…

Thank you to cavocorax for the sample!

I think I sent you a plain Genmaicha so you should have something for comparison soon.

Cool cool cool :) I am loving discovering what I like and don’t like.

Oh, I wish I’d brought some of this to the office! I am craving toasty rice notes now! :P Hope you have better luck with it later, but if it’s not your thing it’s no biggie. :D

Bio

I just started drinking loose tea this year…and by “drinking” I mean, “completely obsessed” with no hope or want of redemption.

One experience with some rooibos and an infuser to show me just how easy it was, and that was all she wrote.

The only tea I ever had before this year was bagged Earl Grey, that one bad experience was enough to put me off tea for life. Turns out, after some trial and error, I discovered I just don’t like bergamot.

All other tea is fair game. I am enjoying expanding my horizons, and I would love to do a swap if anyone is willing to give a newbie a shot! Check out my cupboard and let me know if you are interested in anything!

Tea Ratings:
100-90 – DRINK ALL THE TEA!!! Always in my cupboard. I would cry if discontinued.
80-89 – Very good tea. I probably stock this year round in small quantities.
70-79 – Good tea, but not a “WOW” tea
60-69 – I can appreciate that this is good tea…just not a tea I enjoy
59 or below – No thank you.

As far as life outside of tea goes…I am a fangirl at heart.

I love BBC Sherlock and all things Johnlock.

I also love Doctor Who. 3, 9 & 10 are my favorites…I have high hopes for 12. My favorite companions are River Song, Donna Noble and Mickey the Idiot.

I am an adult fan of Lego, as is my husband bgrinham. We collect Classic Space, Classic Star Wars, Harry Potter, Trains, and the Modular Buildings.

Feel free to say hello! I look forward to meeting people who share in my obsessions! Tea or otherwise!
