Peeps Genmaicha from A Quarter To Tea. . . Take That Tea Name In. . .

  That is right. Someone has combined Peeps with tea-or at least the flavor of Peeps with tea. Peeps seem to split people into two groups, those that love them and those that despise them. I belong to the group that love them. I’ve yet to met a marshmallow product that I don’t adore. Peeps Genmaicha consists of sprinkles, sencha green tea, popped rice, marshmallow root and a few other natural flavorings.  You just have to love the sight of this tea.  All of the lovely sprinkles adding a wonderful touch of spring to the blend. As I steeped (170F Read More

Smooth Roasted Toasted-Genmaicha from California Tea House. . .

  The weather is gloomy and my sinus infection is going in full swing! Today calls for a tea that makes you relax and enjoy the moment. When I first started drinking and experimenting with loose leaf tea, California Tea House was one of the first places I made an order. I can’t remember exactly what I ordered but I can remember being so confused on how to brew each variety and wondering if I would ever learn how to brew loose leaf. Now 10 years later, I yet again have the opportunity to try their teas. And this time, Read More

I wouldn’t call myself a SUPER FAN of SUPER MAN but after watching this series it occurred to me just how much I remember of the Superman Storyline and Comics from childhood thru adulthood.

Banana Marshmallow Genmaicha Treat from 52Teas

I have a lot of tea. A LOT. I also have a shopping problem. So, in order to not drown in tea, I tend to mostly buy sample sizes (as in 25 grams or less). That allows me to just get a taste of the tea without being stuck with large amounts that could potentially expire before I get a chance to finish them. 52 Teas is great for this shopping method because they offer taster sizes that are enough tea to experiment with but not too much that it is hard to use up. However, with all rules there Read More
