drank Kyoto Rice by Mighty Leaf Tea
2816 tasting notes

It’s been a real scorcher today but I just woke up from a nap (hello, vacation!) and I needed something to perk me up.

Genmaichas usually don’t impress me a lot but I like the popped corn in this one, which is something that you don’t always see. Definitely vegetal with a great, savory and brothy quality. It almost reminds me of soup. I have some genmaicha at home already so I doubt I will need to buy anymore soon, but I should probably steal this from my Dad who will never drink it. :-P

Tomorrow I am back home to chilly San Francisco and to my regular tea collection.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

49 and below Nasty
