On a whim, I got a cup of this while picking up some of my stand-bys. It smelt very… peppery? I had my friend sniff it and they agreed, it smelt strangely of green pepper. Fortunately I didn’t get much of that in the taste, instead it came across as a bit malty, smokey, and a little sweet. It really didn’t taste like any green tea I’ve ever had before. Initially I didn’t care for it, but as it cooled a little bit, it started growing on me, and I really can’t peg what it is that I was liking about it.
It feels pretty complex compared to other teas I’ve drank, and, as a result, hard to describe. I’d definitely like to pick up a proper sample down the road though.
