I was very excited to try this—since I love sesame-flavored Asian sweets!
The leaves brew up really “fluffy”—they expand almost like an oolong! So my tall mug looks like it’s half full of leaves after putting in about a teaspoon and a half.
The taste is florally and sweet—no green tea bitterness or astringency. I detect mostly the caramel and just maybe a hint of the toasted sesame. The sweetness reminds me of Golden Moon’s Sugar Caramel Oolong—without the steamed banana leaf flavor I always get with their oolongs.
I wish I can get more “sesame” out this—but, overall, I’m really liking the sugariness!
This is a green tea I can see myself reaching for everyday. It’s very tasty and easy to drink.
