Oh, man. I drank this yesterday (or the day before?) and didn’t have any time to log it or my other teas. My memory of it is a bit too vague to properly comment or rate. But, I really liked this and found it delicate but nicely rounded. It was sweet and a little fruity. I much preferred it to the Makurazaki, and this was what I was looking for in the Japanese blacks I ordered.
