I am very VERY excited to sample these Tea Hawaii Teas!!! Woot!
Dry – this really DOES smell like Sweet Potatoes! Neat!
This ‘infuses’ very light in color a very faded yellow/brown/with slight orange hue.
Post infusion the aroma is a little less of a sweet potato but still a little bit there with a barley-veggie soup partner that comes in to play! It’s very unique!
Yum. The flavor is very tasty but quite…meek…not that THAT is a bad thing…just that it isn’t a strong flavored nor a bold or brash black tea!
It says it’s grown in the Hakalau area and processed in Volcano Growing elevation…is it weird that I associate this fact with this flavor? I has a bit of a charcoal-likeness to it like you would find in charcoal oolongs, for example, more specifically with the Life In Teacup Charcoal Oolongs which I very much enjoy!
As this cools at room temperature it gets naturally sweeter and sweeter and I think it’s just FAB! Neat tea!
