The dry leaf smells roasty sweet, like hojicha candy. It also tastes mildly sweet and roasted. It kind of also tastes like a jujube tea that I have tried before. The last half of the cup is very slightly astringent.

This is not very boldly flavored. It is interesting and different. I would drink this tea again and will finish the 1 oz packet that I purchased, but I do not think I will purchase more of it. It just doesn’t have anything that really stands out about it.

After logging all of our tea, I’m vaguely horrified by how much we have. Especially because I know that we’re getting another huge sampler in a few days… Oh well, more inspiration to drink a lot more tea!
