I brewed this tea without reading the website prior to brewing … so I brewed it the way I would brew a black tea … without making accommodations for the green tea (a genmaicha). Fortunately, the boiling water did not produce a bitter tasting cup.

This is a deliciously chocolate-y tea. It lacks any real green tea notes to speak of. If I slurp the tea to aerate, I notice barely there hints, but really, they are very difficult to discern. Mostly what I taste is chocolate and black tea, and I’m not complaining about tasting a lot of chocolate!

Mid-cup, some of the toasty nut flavors of the genmaicha start to emerge and I like the way these meld with the chocolate notes and add depth to the cup. This is a really pleasant cuppa from Just Add Honey.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
