tea

cup of green joy

Upton Tea (A local company, very close to here in Hopkinton Massachusetts) is my preferred tea purveyor and has been for years. Inexpensive, perfect customer service, and what they don't spend on marketing they pend on providing awesome tea at low prices.


I celebrated a long-delayed check with some green tea, which arrived today. And they had thrown in a sample of Gen-Mai Cha with it.


Oooh, this is nice.


A++, will drink again.

Genmaicha is the single favourite tea of one of my best friends. I like it as well as I like green teas in general, which is to say, I'm still more of a black tea girl, but it might be my pick if I had to stick with greens. Although sencha might fight it off.

(I've been stealth-buying her a box of the tea-bag form for Christmas for years running, but only because there wasn't until lately a place in town to buy loose leaf. Next year, she gets that.)
I used to be much more of black tea drinker--but my system won't take it anymore, alas, except in limited quantities.

So green has become my poison of choice.

Delicious, delicious poison.
