I love my genmaicha tea and if I can find a flavored one, its an automatic impulse buy. I can’t stop myself. Which is what happened when I laid eyes on this blend, Honey Mead from A Quarter to Tea. I knew I didn’t need any more tea, but I HAD to have this one. I mean just listen to the description:
Sencha and toasted rice make a toasty and sweet base for apple, buttered rum and honey flavors (which are accented further with honeysuckle).
This tea had me at toasty sweet base.
Brewed up by the recommended parameters, I set about trying my first sip of this tea. After allowing the tea to settle and cool for a moment, I came away with this gorgeous silky honey flavor that reminded me of a sweet wheat beer. There definitely is a note of “mead” and I can see why this blend is called Honey Mead.
In each sip you are greeted with this amazingly balance honey toasted flavor that mingles very well with the apple buttered rum flavors. All in all, an amazing blend that I had every intention of sharing with some of my sisters but found myself devouring teapot after teapot of this blend until it was gone.
Every time I have A Quarter To Tea I am blown away by how amazing their blends are. This is one of those companies that you know you will not be disappointed by the teas you pick up. I adore the unique flavors they offer that you can’t get anywhere else. One of my favorite companies for sure!
