8 tasting notes

In the pouch: Herbal, almost floral. I had to look at the label to make sure I hadn’t picked up the pouch of green tea instead.

Steeping: Smells like roasted rice. It’s not unpleasant at all, but it’s more of a cereal smell than an herbal smell.

This probably needs a longer steep time than the recommended 2-3 minutes on the label. I was afraid to oversteep it and make it bitter, so I gave it about three minutes. The liquid is transparent. Tastes like hot water lightly infused with roasted rice. I’m going to try a second steep for a longer steep time. Surely there is more to this tea than this.

Second steep: Still smells like toasted rice, but now tastes like spinach.
