First, the little “stars” this tea is formed into are both beautiful and adorable. So much fun.

The steeped scent is very sweet in a berry sort of way with a touch of green.

When sipped hot, it has a coating berry taste along the back of the tongue and throat. Very distinct, very enjoyable. There is also a buttery mouthfeel behind the lips.

This actually reminds me some of the Sakura Sencha I recently had… the sencha buttery fullness in that tea.

This is one that loses it’s lovely “oomph” as it cools, best drunk while nice and comfortably hot.
