Odd, This tea smells like ginger (which also translates in taste). It’s smooth kind of buttery, barely able to detect the vegital taste or the honey suckle sweetness I’ve found to enjoy in (Teavana’s) Silver Needles. But it’s different, and I like different. It almost has a starchy/rice taste….
Now I want sushi.
I’m actually enjoying the ginger-ness in this. I’m wondering if thats the toasty note the description describes.
