drank Toasted Sesame by Adagio Teas
1592 tasting notes

When I first opened this tin, the first thing I noticed was how oily and black the leaves look. The smell was just like toasted sesame, which I absolutely love! After I steeped it, the leaves looked dark brown and almost had a green sheen to it. Very nice. The smell of sesame was faint to me. The taste is very faint sesame but bitter. I added some sugar after tasting it without sugar. I believe it needed it. I don’t have any milk, but it might help to add some milk too. Overall, good tea. I’m not too into bitter though. My mouth feels a bit dry now.

Not too weird, actually. Many asian desserts and candies are flavored with sesame. :)

I don’t doubt that, but my American taste buds say “What the heck???” =D
