“AND RELAX: A.K.A popcorn tea. Genmaicha is a traditional Japanese brew. It contains brown roasted rice grains, some of which have popped, hence popcorn tea. A nutty sweet green tea.” [source]
In my teacup today is my twenty-second day of Christmas teas from TeaRevv. Today’s selection is And Relax. This blend was deliciously herbal, and the perfect moment of calm that I needed after my stressful day of handmaking all my Christmas presents! This green tea was beautifully sweet, and that really complimented the strong herbs in this brew. The scent of lemongrass was really powerful, but in the flavours it was the rosemary, and citrusy tangerine that stood out. This fruity edge prompted an idea, and I mixed this tea with a shot of my favourite Edinburgh Gin Elderflower Liqueur. This little splash of booze was just what I needed to make the present-wrapping run smoothly. Bliss.
