This is a ‘nostalgia’ tea for me. Its smell takes me back to my childhood, just like freshly steamed rice. At first I was amazed at the smell of it had and then I questioned if I was just biased while tasting it. Then, a friend walked in and asked if I was cooking rice; tea true to its name. If you like nutty flavor and a tea that give a ‘filling’ sensation while you drink this is a tea to try.
