When I steeped this tea I wasn’t expecting something that I would love. The fact that everyone talked about its smokiness kind of turned me away from it. But I went in with an open mind, and, sure enough, the taste is actually pretty satisfying. The hint of smokey flavor adds to the body of the tea and leaves an interesting aftertaste that I can’t really describe. I think I nailed the temperature on this steep. Overall, a decent green tea.

Just a little update. As I got to the end of the cup, the smokey flavor became much “heavier” and the tea really dried out my mouth. Not an amazing ending to a nice cup of tea.

It’s def a strong green tea. Bit vegetable like.

Yeah it has that smoked vegetable aroma and taste. Not bad though. The Genmai Cha is definitely better.
