I’m kind of disappointed. This is my second time having this tea, and the sesame flavor is still a little bit weaker than I was imagining. I envisioned a tea with a robust, toasted sesame flavor that doesn’t overwhelm the tea, but is still very present. I can smell it in the brewed tea and in the loose leaf (and still the smell of soy sauce?). But the sesame flavor is hard to find when I sip. But take this all with a grain of salt, because I’ve never been the worlds biggest fan of black tea. And, my palate is not the most refined. It is not bad, just not as flavorful as I was hoping. I’ll be interested in what others have to say.
