It’s been awhile since I had this one! SimplyJenW sent me some awhile ago and I just got around to trying it again after I had a sample from thepuriTea.
I probably still have that sample somewhere…ugh.
I had the first steep earlier, it was very roasty. It almost tasted like a genmaicha. The second steep has that same roastiness, but with a bit of spearmint now.
I definitely remember this being a bit sweeter…but I still like it. I prefer the houjicha/genmaicha type flavor compared to smokiness.
