Tea of Inquiry from Allegheny Coffee & Tea Exchange. . . .

Fun facts about genmaicha tea:

– It’s tea cut with rice, including popped rice (“popcorn tea”).

– It’s consumed all over the world.

– It used to be associated with the lower class, because they couldn’t afford straight tea.

– It might be an appetite suppressant. People with less money would drink it when they couldn’t afford food.

– It’s DELICIOUS.

If you’re like “I want to get on board with green tea, but I can’t even begin to deal with all that GREEN flavor,” give this a try. It’s a workaround. It tastes like toast/popcorn/rice. It has a robust, grainy/nutty kind of flavor. The “green”ness is cut down significantly.

Plus, I mean, you’re getting down with the proletariat. You’re supporting the REGULAR FOLK on PRINCIPLE.

I don’t have a lot of experience drinking this new favorite type of tea. If you’re a connoisseur, I can’t tell you whether Allegheny Coffee & Tea Exchange’s “Tea of Inquiry” is a stellar example of the genre. But I think it’s delicious. I recommend trying it or another gemaicha today! It might be for you.
