This is a sample sent to me by Azzrian. Thank you so much!

Wow, this is not at all what I expected! If I had not read the description, I wouldn’t know that it is caramel flavor I am tasting. I am not sure what sesame tastes like in tea, I have only had it on rolls. And I think this is the first time I have had bancha! So the whole profile of the cup is really new and different.

And I like it! I really feel like it should remind me of sme exotic foreign foods I have eaten, except I haven’t eaten much exotic foreign food! I have to say, this cup is PACKED with flavor, and although I never add sugar to my hot tea, I don’t think anyone would ever need to even if they normally do. This is really sweet on its own, and the base is smooth and assertive at the same time.

Thank you so much, Azzrian, for sending this for me to try!

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
