I suspect this is a really nice tea if you like Genmaicha. I have a pretty visceral dislike of it (I always hated the scent of puffed rice cereal, and, well, that’s essentially what’s in here). I gave it a try because you never know until you try, but I’ve confirmed I still dislike it. It’s nicely balanced and the minty sting is just the perfect amount. I’m not going to give it a numerical rating because it’s not fair when I just dislike one of the main ingredients.

Flavors: Grass, Peppermint, Rice, Toasted Rice

Wife, mom of 2 crazy young kids (and 3 cats, if they count). Used to be a professional tree hugger, now I stay at home hobbit-like and teach the kids to love the trees. Also hobbit-like, I love reading, tea, second breakfasts, cooking and food in general, and gardens. (I can’t really say I love gardening since where I live, it’s too dratted hot for too much of the year to actually do it.) I am always on the search for a good flavored decaf black tea. Suggestions are more than welcome!

I tend to like my teas strong, so I use more than most people when I brew. Don’t be put off a tea because I say I used 4 tsp to brew 12 oz or something – that’s just me.

PS – Unlike a hobbit, my toes are not furry. I just feel the need to clarify.
