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.
