Today’s Vegan MoFo prompt is “Far Away” and basically if we dug straight down – where would we come out? Based on where I am it would be the ocean but the closest land-wise would be Australia which was ironic because I was just sipping on Genmaicha from Blue Hour Tea and that hails from Australia. Acheron Valley in Victoria, Australia, to be exact.
Genmaicha from Blue Hour Tea is your standard yet sturdy Genmaicha. There are no surprises with this Genmaicha from Blue Hour Tea but that isn’t a slam to this tea rather a praise! It’s everything you would expect from a Genmaicha. Fresh green tea, roasted and toasted rice, and and rich matcha make up this offering from Blue Hour Tea. It’s sweet, nutty, and vegetal. It’s toasty, roasty, and mouth-watering. A real winner! Genmaicha from Blue Hour Tea offers a top-notch tasting tea!
