This “First Date” is the second tea that I’m trying from my July box from Postal Teas. It’s a genmaicha green tea – Japanese green tea blended with roasted rice. Not a tea that’s new to me, I’ve had a lot of genmaicha teas in my years as a tea reviewer.
It’s a sweet Japanese green tea blended with sweet, roasty-toasty rice. Pleasant. Agreeable. And I’m enjoying my pot of tea that was made possible by my new subscription to Postal Teas and by Tease.
It’s a nice tea to have after a meal, because I find it to be sweet and almost dessert-like without tasting over-indulgent. A good tea to choose to unwind with later in the afternoon, when you’re not quite ready to go “caffeine-free” but you don’t want something too stimulating.
It’s a good tea, but, as I’ve said, I’ve had a lot of genmaicha teas, and this isn’t anything out of the ordinary.
I guess I’m still feeling a little underwhelmed by the teas selected for the July Postal Teas box. After perusing the Tease website, I felt like there were several intriguing teas to choose from … this isn’t one I would have selected, so I’m hopeful that they’ll impress me with next month’s box.
I certainly enjoyed receiving the package with the notebook and the handwritten note (a really nice touch) … and I really like the size of the packages of tea from Postal Teas – it’s just the right amount for a pot of tea. However, I am hopeful that for August, the box from Postal Teas will prove to be more inspired.
