It’s kinda like green tea without the tea. There is a roasty flavor to this that I really like. I may have already said this but it is hard not to eat this tea. I eat half popped kernals of popcorn that don’t quite pop all the way. Like cooking some teas happen by accident take a left over…a grain…a flower steep it and there you go :-)
To quote So I married an Axe Murderer " I believe all Scotish cuisine is based on a dare". Same goes here. What do you do with the left over popcorn kernels that didn’t pop….throw em in a tea pot and see what you get. I happen to like the warm unpopped kernels so I do like this tisane.
I took a chance on this one for 2.99. I honesty had to keep myself from eating it as a snack because I love crunching on unpopped popcorn kernels. When steeping there is a nice roasted aroma. I let it steep for awhile. The flavor was very light almost like a watered down coffee or if you just put coffee beans into a strainer and poured hot water on the with out grinding….ahem Not like I’ve done that before. Different but I like it.

Well, it was sweet, and not bad at all. It reminded me of a light white tea, and was so nice and sweet it didn’t need sweetener. It really didn’t capture my attention or was a memorable enough flavor to leave me craving more but I am very glad I got to try some of this unique tea.
