This tea is amazing! I love toasty, rich green teas and this one just blows me away.

First, it smells of toasty goodness and fresh, woodsy green tea. There are small, toasted brown rice kernels scattered throughout and some of them have popped into what looks like tiny popcorn. Very few of these make their way into my cup. I eat them. They are delicious. In fact, I have been known to eat all parts of this tea.

165/1.5 min. The aroma is wonderful. I consider everything about this tea to be a comfort. It smells of toast, and California rolls, and popcorn and campfires all rolled into one. The taste is lovely. It has a roasted green flavor, kind of nutty, kind of woody. It is extraordinary.

I’m a middle school teacher of French, Spanish, ESL and reading intervention. I’m also a mom to two young children.

I’ve always been a tea lover. When I lived in France during college, I really loved the tisanes. Over the past couple of years, I’ve branched off into loose teas. I’m not very knowledgeable about teas, but I’m really loving the learning process!
