This is my first review. Yay for being a tea newbie! I picked this up yesterday as am impulse buy while doing some last minute Valentine Day shopping.
I followed the directions on the bag for the most part, bringing the water to about 200F. I was surprised by how dark this tea brewed up (5 minutes steeping time). It can easily be mistaken for coffee! I closed my eyes and took a deep inhalation. Kombu, kelp that’s part of the base broth for miso soup, instantly came to mind. The taste is quite nutty, like toasted sesame seeds. I’m not blown away by this tea, but I find it to be quite savory and good with an afternoon snack.
Flavors: Fish Broth, Malt, Nuts, Seaweed
