The syrupy mouthfeel is spot on, and there is a hint of sweetness to it. This tea is slightly toasted, I think, and it gives it a slight genmai-cha-like flavor that isn’t really my thing. It’s fine to drink this sample, but I won’t get it again.
With just a little bit of honey, this tea becomes the most soothing, syrupy elixir of any tea I’ve tried. By far my favorite for chilly evenings; I close my eyes and sink into the aroma, taste and sensation of this fine tea.
