drank Genmai Cha by Tavalon Tea

So astringent that I wanted to get a cotton ball and use it as a facial toner.

Well I just nearly shot tea out of my nose! Haha!

Was the water maybe a bit too hot? Or was it just a crappy genmaicha?

Do you have a Chinatown close to you? They’re usually a good source for greens and genmaichas that are cheap but tasty :)


I think I must just have a really low tolerance for astringency. I have two other greens from Tavalon tea (I got a tea of the month subscription as a gift) that I really like. The only other genmaicha that I ever tried was The Republic of Tea’s Tea of Inquiry that wasn’t astringent at all.

Fair enough!

Formerly exclusively a coffee drinker—-plain black. But I’ve turned over a new leaf, and now consume tea in the afternoons and evenings. And I love flavored, interesting teas—but I get bored with them quickly, and so need lots to switch around.
