it has that yummy toasted flavor of brown rice with a delicate green tea taste…or maybe too delicate?

i cant taste it anymore after taking a bite of chocolate :(

but i still liked it enough to steep a 2nd bag :)
i left my teabag steeping for way too long and it never got bitter, lol. good or bad? hahaha

just when i thought i was getting to like green tea :s
