    Not as bad as you thought, and certainly entertaining. You might cut the time down a bit if you don’t have lots of information to fill it, but other than that, not bad.

    Genmaicha was traditionally drunk by the poor Japanese, because the rice served as a filler. Now of course, everyone enjoys it. There is another variant of this called Matcha-iri genmaicha, which is genmaicha with matcha added. If you haven’t tried it it’s very good, a little more of the green tea flavor and a brighter color.

      Thanks for the info Rob! I am learning more everyday about tea! It’s great. I know I rambled on and on, the funny thing is I had a lot of information I was going to share…but I guess I might have been a little anxious! And forgot. Haha.

    You are funny! I enjoyed it, especially because that is what I brewed at the shop today!! …because I was freezing and it is the only tea that truly warms me up. Btw, it is a soft G- like genn – genmai is japanese for brown unpolished rice- Keep up the good work!

      Thanks for posting Joy! And for the tip! I’m going to try posting a video once a week, and hopefully I can learn to wrap it up and stop rambling!
