Default Farewell, genmaicha

This is a green tea that may have been roasted a bit too much by
mistake, so they fixed it by mixing it with roasted rice? It has that
puffed rice breakfast taste you remember from your childhood.
Surprisingly, it makes a good iced tea. I'm going on to other greens
and mixtures for the autumn, but want t leave my options open on this
one. Toci

Genmaicha is one tea I can honestly say I will never have a taste for.
I even like puffed rice cereal but I just can't do it. You've
mentioned the iced tea thing before and almost tempted me to try it
but I knew I'd just end up with a bunch of extra wasted genmaicha and
probably water my plants with the iced tea. I have tried so many times
over the years thinking my palate would change, but so far genmaicha
and candied sweet potatoes remain the two foods I can't even get down.

I tend to drop away from greens altogether in the fall/winter. It
happens subconciously too because I never plan it, I just find myself
with some comforting black tea or an oolong more often than not. What
greens/mixes do you drink in Autumn? BLC is about the only green that
remains in my rotation or possibly a jasmine green.

I, also, have tried genmaicha -- again and again hoping something
might change. It still tastes like canned spinach juice to me.
Hadn't thought about using it to water plants. Hmmm... Expensive,
but worth a try.

I'm planning to buy Melange de Chamonix. I also like the Christmas
melange but both are a bit much. Then I'm buying about 8 black
samples. Toci

I think genmaicha is the only tea I just can't seem to like. I'm not
sure why, either. Maybe I will try it iced, though, just to give it
another chance.
