drank Tokyo by Harney & Sons
1199 tasting notes

I have some of this from both Alphakitty and Azzrian! I know though this is from the bag from Alphakitty first, but thank you both for the inevitable hook this tea will have on me.

I love the sesame seeds in the tea before I even steep it, I don’t think I have ever had a tea with any sesame flavor in it before, although I can only think of few others. Along with the caramel, I can smell ginger and citrus.

It’s much sweeter than I was expecting! The sesame flavor isn’t strong at all, I think it kind of mixes in with the bancha and adds just a slight genmaicha type flavor to it.

I’m actually not sure how I feel about it. It’s more citrusy than I thought it would be. It smells like caramel, but I just don’t get caramel when I drink it. Well, maybe, just in a sort of it feels like I’m drinking something syrupy sort of way. I’m going to have to cold brew it and try it that way.

Also would anyone be interested if I were to sell a couple envelopes of lots of samples? I am about broke for 2 weeks and I’d at least like to buy a couple of my textbooks while my school takes their sweet time direct depositing my money. I suppose I can beg my mom for like $200 to not freak out but it would also make me feel better to not have so much tea.
Because you know the two are directly correlated.

The flavor on this is pretty light, I think it comes out well when cold-brewed—it’s still not heavily caramel, though. I’m sorry to hear about your money woes, and seeing as how mystery boxes are my weakness I’d be willing to help you unload some tea/buy textbooks!

Azzrian

I would probably get one from you I know that our last trade was EPICALLY good! I mean I loved every single tea you sent me!
Seriously.
So depending on what you are selling them for and if I have the money for it I would grab one from you! Make a thread on it or PM me!

I have it set up on a site sort of like paypal called We Pay but I want to get some nicer bags than ziplock ones first, I’m waiting to order them until I’ll be back and then I’ll post the link to the shop page as a thread.

I’m letting it cool off to see how it is cold, but I’ll definitely be coldbrewing it next!

momo

It does stop having that syrupy feeling to it now that it’s room temp though.

Azzrian

Never heard of wepay does one have to open an account with them like you do paypal?

momo

If you want to pay with a credit card, no, but to set it up like paypal where it comes from a bank account it requires signing up. And in that case, I’d just go off to paypal for that transaction, even though I don’t trust them all that much anyway, nobody more needs my bank info lol. I think to set up the store thing it didn’t require any of that since you can get a physical check for accepting payments received.

Azzrian

Oh okay cool well link me or PM me when your ready!
