Once you have read the box it is hard to not let influence how the drink tastes. On the front of the box it says “creamy, baked, flavor”. While I can see where they get the creamy from; when you put creamy and baked together my brain just thinks pumpkin pie. Those words need to be separated and put on different sides of the box. Definitely smells like a Chinese tea. Kinda bitter and earthy. Which I supposed can be described of many green teas. But Chinese green teas have a certain earthy smell to them that even the Japanese ones don’t.

I steeped it 3 mins like the box said to and I feel that it is still a bit light in flavor but I didn’t want to steep it longer for fear of too much bitterness. Even though the flavor is light, at the moment, I still quite enjoy it.

It’s also good cold. I think I prefer it lukewarm though.

Where to being… well, I’ve been drinking jasmine tea for a long time. It still remains a favorite of mine but I’ve now added any more.

Green teas are my favorite. I like black tea but generally prefer it with something added. Whites are nice. Rooibos can be a hit or miss. (Golden Honeydew by Lupicia is the best). I don’t mind herbals but it really depends on the ingredients.
