This is a new genre of tea for me completely. It tastes like seaweed and spinach. Mellow and soft, it is not unpleasant but certainly new. It does not need anything to supplement it- I think this is a taste you acquire, I have not succeeded yet, it is just culturally very new and I will have to keep trying it and see if it sticks. Smells like warm seaweed, not overly strong, but not like anything else I have ever tasted in tea. Funky.
