If I can increase the tea I drink by the time it gets to Black Friday/Cyber Monday I can buy with less guilt right? Lemme drink more tea… So I got a small pack of this when. Verdant was having the blend sale… I’d wanted to try the Laoshan Black Genmaicha too but it was gone then. :( Anyway, this has a sweet smell and very apple cinnamony. I thought I’d really like it based on the reviews but it’s watery to me. The taste isn’t strong enough somehow like I was expecting and I hate that the cinnamon will sludge at the bottom. It was really gross at the end of the cup, and I even tried it with the mesh infuser after the first cup. It makes an alright cold tea but again it’s taste is pretty weak.
