Bold flavour but dilute-tasting; this may be because it was sitting around in a sample baggie for a while. I like the profile of this tea. I can taste faint notes of everything that I love in my favourite blacks; the leathery notes, hint of sweetness, straw-like notes, smooth mouth-feel.

Thanks to Indigobloom and Sil for sharing!

Nice roasted flavour. Extra savoury and nutty tinge from the soybeans. Oceanic quality of the green is present but possibly milder when compared to other genmaichas. Mild roasted flavour. Clear/smooth/soup-y mouthfeel.

Bergamot present in the aroma. Flavour does not have full cream taste. Black base has a sharp edge of astringency which I find to be too strong. Bergamot and vanilla flavours present.

Oh dear LOL
I just had a cuppa the other day, in loose form. It seemed to do a bit better. But yeah, the bag I had before that was awful :s

Brewed tea has very strong floral aroma. The tea flavour tastes like a white. Jasmine flavour fairly faint. Smooth mouth-feel. Jasmine flavor blooms close to the end of the sip.

Woodsy warming flavour. Eucalyptus-like spice balanced with lemon flavour. Lychee note in the aroma and flavour. I’m not detecting any creaminess but that may be because there was flavour lost in transit.

Reminds me of a spa sauna.
