Perhaps it’s the age of the bag (which is questionable), but there’s a roasted flavor coming out in this tea. It tastes like roasting brown rice for rice-a-roni smells, down to a slight buttery note and mouthfeel. There’s still the vegetal taste of the green tea as well, but it’s not sweet-grassy like some greens that I’ve had and not enjoyed.
Normally, I’m not a big fan of plain, non-flavored green teas. But this one…this one I could actually see myself buying more of, especially to keep here at the office. And this cup has went way too fast.
