drank Yuzu Kukicha by Den's Tea

I may add more, or adjust the rating, since this is just my initial impression, however, without further adieu —

The dry leaf smells nice, definitely citrusy.
The leaf after infusion is really interesting. It is very savory, like spices from a dry rub marinade…do I detect lemon pepper? basil? sage? I think so.

The citrus from the yuzu is very nice; it is an enjoyable tart and a bit sweet, rather than sour. The kukicha is not overly strong, but is sweet and very approachable. This is a very fun tea, and like the other flavored options from Den’s, they seem to have done a very good job of adding a good flavor without taking from the excellent tea base.

Very interesting stuff and my first encounter with yuzu. I found the citrusy flavor was much more prominent in the second steeping.

I agree, I think the savory flavor is more prominent the first steep (with citrus only coming out at the end) and the second has a lot more noticeably citrus flavor throughout.
