  • A Surprise!

  • I'd never really tried a tea like this before, and though it wasn't my favorite... its was quite delicious! It has a very potent roasted flavor, so I'd recommend steeping it lightly. With just a little bit of sugar, the flavor really opens up and has a lot of character. If you love green tea, I believe it is an exceptional one you should try!

  • I always come back to this tea, it's an, excellent choice when you want something a little more exciting than a green, but a bit more nuanced than a black tea. This is a fantastic option at a reasonable price :)
  • A pleasant and somewhat intense cup

  • The roasted rice in this blend gives the tea a pleasantly intense toasty flavor. It does not overpower the Sencha, but acts as a tasty compliment.
