I’m a big fan of the roasted, toasted, nutty teas. It was pleasantly surprising how the brown rice brought out such grainy flavors. The fact that it’s also known as the “peoples tea” definitely gives me something to think about while sipping. It’s good for about 3 steeping’s. Toasted cereal + sencha= a toasty cup of tea without the floral and grassy notes. An absolute pleasure. First steeping was kept at 2 minutes at lower temp. Further steeping’s at 3 min slightly higher temp.
