I didn’t mind the flavor of this so much, although it tasted like ginger, and not ginseng. And not really like green tea much at all. The problem for me is that it completely dried out the back of my throat to the point where I felt a nagging tickle back there. I did make it through about 2/3 of the cup before I just couldn’t stand the dry feeling anymore, and got up to go make a cup of Den’s sencha. Now I have to decide what to do with the rest of this – if anyone in the US or Canada wants it send me a message!
