This was a sample with my last order. I was really excited to try it, admittedly in large part because of the novelty. I like it, but I’m not blown away – though that might be because I haven’t experimented with it enough.

The dry leaves smell fruity. The brewed tea also smells fruity, though I can’t quite articulate what fruit. This brews up a light pink-purple, very pretty. It tastes of toasted rice and a hint of jasmine. Like others have mentioned, this tastes similar to sencha, only sweeter and maybe not as dry. It has a light, smooth mouthfeel. Pleasant enough overall. Glad to have tried it.
