Upon initial opening of the package I thought “Hmm… This doesn’t smell like it’s going to be that great.” But WOW after steeping it, it smelled so good! It smelled AND tasted exactly like a Thai sticky rice ball dessert soup! I didn’t add any sugar or sweetener, yet the intense sweetness of the tea was more than enough to make it taste like the That dessert. This tea also showed hints of homemade soy milk and brown sugar. Great tea! I’d love to have it in my herbal tea collection!

Second steeping was MUCH lighter in color and flavor, however I still very much enjoyed it!

Ha, buckwheat tea. It tastes like buckwheat. Where are the noodles and onions? Maybe I will make some for dinner tomorrow night.

I am not entirely sure I can give a perfect review of this, as my brewing resources are rather low-tech (kettle, electric stove, mug). Amount is what is in the select package. I am sure my technique is poor.

Smells richly of a light coffee. Was not strong, but that is not a bad thing. To simplify the flavor profile, it tasted like a watered down coffee with nutty notes. It really did taste like a roasted grain/rice tea. I enjoy it, and think it would go well with a soup or rice dish or as a mild evening tea.

When I first read the notes about the flavors in this tea, I didn’t think I was going to enjoy it at all. I was very pleasantly surprised how soothing the taste was and how much I liked the taste. It has a smooth flavor and makes my entire body feel good!
