Recent Tasting Notes
Drank this again – lots of tea drinking due to the weather. Especially since I favour salads for work lunches…tea is the only thing that can warm me up. Roasted notes wash down the remains of my lunch perfectly, and the fact that lots of people at work are sick made this seem like a sensible choice, being a herbal tea with leaf ginseng and lots of other herbs…
Flavors: Corn Husk, Herbs, Roasted, Roasted Barley, Roasted Nuts
Been drinking this for 2 years now. Its a real mix of herbals and teas, thank goodness for the mandatory Canadian labelling that provides the ingredient listing in English as the original packaging is all in Japanese. If you like roasted teas like hojicha, you will love this. The main note is of roasted corn/soy/barley. I didn’t know there was oolong in it until I checked the ingredient list, but once I knew it was there I can detect it. I’m not a huge fan of licorice but luckily it doesn’t play much of a role in this tea. Its a tea I find myself reaching for more in the winter, probably because of the warm, roasted flavours.
Here’s the full ingredient list I put into the tea info, since a lot of them don’t exist in the current ingredient options: Corn, barley, senna, soybean, pearl barley, dokudami herb, persimmon leaf, bamboo leaf, oolong tea, herb tea (tencha), licorice, loquat, wolfberry, mulberry leaf, five-leaf ginseng
Flavors: Roasted, Roasted Barley, Soybean, Toasted
