I’m in a Japanese immersion ‘camp’ right now, so I thought this one would be fitting (thanks, silvermage!)- we’ve eaten plenty of Japanese food while here, although not enough sweet sesame desserts for my liking :) Also, right now I need to wake up, so a black tea seemed like a fine idea.
This isn’t the first time I’ve tried this one, and I keep finding myself really missing the taste of sesame. It’s there in the dry tea, but brewed this mostly just tastes like okay black tea to me- slightly bitter, slightly dry, good to wake up to.
I am considering just combining this with the sweet potato adagio tea- that one is a bit too sweet, and this one just tastes like nothing when brewed, so voila, diluted s.p. tea.
So funny- I didn’t drink black tea before this immersion program, but as stress caused my tummy to get a little bit unpredictable I found black tea was one of the most effective remedies- more so than the ‘tummy’ herbal teas I have. I have been loving my black teas here.
Anyway, unimpressed by this one.
