Ooh, what an interesting tea. This came from a swap I did a while ago with albertocanfly. It’s definitely an unusual one, and I’m not really sure what to expect. It came in a traditional-style tea bag (the paper kind with the string) and there was a little bit of a roasty scent to it. I followed the parameters from albertocanfly’s tasting note.
It definitely smells like unsalted and unbuttered popcorn, with a little bit of a burnt edge to it. It actually tastes a lot like popcorn also, but there’s definitely a sobacha-like aspect to it as well, almost like peanuts. There’s a natural sweetness that especially comes out at the end. Overall, this is definitely tasty, but I think I prefer sobacha.
