I made a cup of this tea at work tonight, and it very much reminded me of miso soup. Then I wanted some miso soup. So I stopped by the grocery store and picked up a few packets, and when I got home started up the kettle to heat some water. Now, the instructions say to put the miso mix in a bowl or large mug (I opted for bowl), and add one cup of boiling water. So I measured the water in a measuring cup, and then proceeded to pour the water into the bowl, towards myself. Which was a very bad idea because it spilled right onto my stomach, and I now have 2nd degree burns. And a trip to the ER. All because of the tea, that I would still, even now, recommend. I guess I did inadvertently get burned from the gunpowder.
