I was with a friend when I got this and her reaction to it was “that’s just normal tea!” and that is pretty much the feeling I get from it. It’s actually kind of nice, a little sweet, but otherwise unremarkable, not too strong, not too weak, a tea you almost won’t even notice drinking. I give it 4 out of 5 "eh"s.
Namacha is ten years old and that means it’s time for a change! The secret of namacha is that we store the tea leaves at -40 degrees Celsius which makes for a gentle tea completely different from the namacha up to now! Just one sip will leave you feeling refreshed!
