Well you confused both of us :p
Robert, The Devotea, my partner in chaos, puts out a writing challenge.
So the shenanigans were to write about butter, no parsnips.
Luckily it was no parsnips as I can’t recalling having eaten any of those – […]

What is Rumchata
I don’t know but after this
I don’t want to know
Tea: Rumchata Genmaicha
Type: Green Tea
Packaging: Loose Leaf
Description: Our friend LiberTEAs was a big fan of our Rumchata honeybush, but suggested that a Rumchata genmaicha would be even better. It was one of those head-smacking moments for me when I tried to imagine the toasted rice in the genmaicha with the horchata and rum flavors. Of course it would be awesome.
So here it is. Thanks to LiberTEAs for the suggestion.
Incidentally, as I write this, it looks like we have four pouches of the honeybush Rumchata still available. If you haven’t tried that yet, you are missing out.
