Hey I just joined here and figured I'd say hello. I'm not really new to teas, just not really knowledgable other then grabbing a box of yogi tea and throwing a teabag in a cup of hot water and hoping to remember to take it out eventually. I prefer herbal teas, as I try to limit caffiene, and I like the tastes....but then again, I don't think I've ever steeped a black or green tea at home that I actually enjoyed, so I am probably not doing something right.
Anyways, I just ordered some teas for Harney & sons after I read about a tea I HOPE is one that I feel in love with at Japanese resturants...genmaicha. I was always intrigued by the hint of rice in the tea, but whenever I'd get the courage up to ask the server, I was just told "green tea". It hasn't arrived yet, being as I order late Friday night, but I look forward to try the genmaicha as well as the handful of samples I ordered.
Any information you might be will to impart on me, I'd be very grateful!
