This tea smells of coffee, kukicha and toasted rice. I feel like I’ve smelled this before in other green tea blends, so I’m almost expecting this to taste familiar. Sipping… this is a very smooth and sweet green tea. It actually reminds me of marshmallow treat genmaicha, only less toasty. I don’t really taste caramel or burnt sugar, but a soothing and sweet green tea. Nothing is overwhelming or unbalanced. The flavors of this blend are in harmony, but they’re not that special. I wish that there were more caramel, but it is a quietly soothing cup for this evening.
