From Maeda-en

People tend to steer away from Houttuynia, which is called “Fishy Smelling Herb” in Chinese. Not ours!
Maeda-en’s Houttuynia based 6-herb blend tea is equally refreshing as it is delicious: Houttuynia cordata, Pearl Barley, Semen cassiatorea, Chapanpsao, Soy bean and Oolong blend into a well balanced, malty, nutty, and toasty harmony.
This tea comes in a convenient brewing bag for home brewing.

I forgot to add this to my cupboard, but I just finished off the sample, so…mission accomplished?

This review is going to be totally lame, because it’s going to sound very similar to my soba-cha and mugi-cha tea logs. So, you know what? I’m just gonna cut out the middle-man:

- most of the sweetness
+ dark taste from mugi-cha
+ kinda…spicy? [peppery, maybe]
+ maybe a little nuttier
= dokudami.

I like it, but not as much as soba-cha or mugi-cha. So I guess it’s a good thing that my sample’s gone and I didn’t order it. Anyhow, it was interesting. And I’m writing this as I’m trying to listen to a podcast, which isn’t going over too well because I keep typing what they’re saying so I’m just gonna stop right now because if I keep going this isn’t going to make more sense.

Now I want soba-cha. Damn it.

soba-cha is at the top of my “to buy” list.


DAG. I forgot you wanted this, too. I’ll send you an envelope!

So easy to drink in any season or climate. Earthy taste without mustiness. Feels clean and refreshing, so much better than plain water!
