The first thing I noticed with this tea was the strong scent of fish after the water was added. I am still hopeful that this tea won’t taste fishy.. but the scent is enough to scare me a little bit.

Hmmm. This cup has earthy & hay flavors that fade into something a bit sweet. Sadly, this tastes a lot like fish to me and I really dislike fish. I can see how this might be a yummy tea, but I can’t continue to drink it as the fish notes are all I can taste/smell. I’m disappointed that I can’t taste any of the cake/pastry notes. Well, I’m happy that I sampled this tea before buying a bunch more.

I think I had the same impression as you about this one. Didn’t get why everyone loved it so much. Did you rinse it before drinking it? (I think I did, and it didn’t make a difference.)

I rinsed it twice! I guess this one just isn’t for us…
