Found this in bulk at my local co-op. They have quite a few different bulk teas, and whilst the bulk containers are clear, they’re small and don’t have too much tea in them at a time. In fact, there wasn’t much of this left at all, and a saleswoman kindly let me get mine from the bag that they use to refill (which was the silver, sealed bag that it had been shipped in).

This has a definite toasted rice taste to it, but there’s also a slight buttery taste underneath that, and a yeasty edge that reminds me of baking bread. It’s thick and slightly savory, as well. Something about it reminds me of Korean food, but I’m not sure how or why that is.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 3 min, 0 sec

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
