Hmm the elements of this one are slightly disjointed for me. I mostly taste genmaicha, and I think the toasted rice is sometimes too strong here. The first time I tried this, it was almost bitter in its strong toasty quality. I also tasted a soft orange, not really sour at all, plus some creaminess. However, things aren’t really blending together smoothly. The elements sort of hit at different times and don’t really become one cohesive whole. I wish I could taste that delicious orange more, but it’s really covered up by the rice. Adding milk sort of helped smooth everything out, but I’m still not interested in trying this a third time. The resteep tastes only like toasted rice.

I’m an event planner who always has multiple mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my troublesome kitties.

Favorite flavors: dessert flavors, nutty, melon, mint, strawberry, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
