I wanted something citrusy and sweet tonight while watching Wizard of Oz on TV. This fit the bill! I found my sample and brewed it up. This is absolutely delicious! The scent is like lemon pledge mixed with sweet, almost-burnt sugar. The beginning of the sip is a bit tart… more of a lime tartness to it and then it leaves me with an astringency in my mouth. This THEN evolves into the lemon-lime meringue pie! So delicious! The aftertaste is fantastic. The sweetness lingers and this tastes exactly like the pie! The tartness and sweetness mixed with creaminess that the kukicha imparts. This is great! The crust is in there as well, and this is all in the aftertaste as well. As I continue to drink this awesome beverage, I have this continual dessert in my mouth. Great tea! Genius! It doesn’t need any sugar either. Though, I’m rather curious as to what it would taste like with sugar.
