The scent of the dry leaves is amazing! I can really smell the creaminess of the caramel. It reminds me very much of the popular caramel spread from Argentina called “dulce de leche”. The tea brews up quite dark—like a roasted oolong. The taste is toasty and sweet like a sugary Genmaicha!
I’m really really enjoying this—it’s sweet, toasty, creamy comfort in a cup.
(While the aroma is deliciously rich, the flavor is actually really mellow and smooth—no bitterness and no astringency)
