Breaking into my sample of this, this afternoon. It’s gloomy and wet outside, and I’m fighting what is apparently my now-traditional late-summer head cold. Hurrah! To celebrate such a wonderful confirmation, I give myself this tea. I’m not usually one for the vegetal, grassy taste of green teas, but every now and then, something this bright and light finds its way to my cupboard, and I can’t help but like it.
Opening the bag, I’m hit with the memory of rice crackers. Specifically, the seasoned sesame-and-seaweed kinds we get at the Asian grocery stores. I grew up snacking on those, and here, the leaf is like finding those crackers in liquid form. Brewed up, it tastes most like creamy green beans, but the rice cracker taste holds strong at the finish. I imagine this would make an excellent iced tea?
