This tea is probably produced by roasting kukicha: quite a few of stems and stalks are plainly visible. Nevertheless, it is a pleasant unassuming tea. The aroma has the notes of spices, vanilla and baked bread. The taste is less complex but comforting: sweetness and roastiness on top of a customary kukicha/bancha taste.

It is perfect for a before-the-bed cup of tea, with a low caffeine content coming as an added bonus.

I had three steepings of this gungfu style, with times of 30, 30, and 45 seconds. I enjoyed the lightly sweet and toasty flavors this had. I’ve heard the sweet described as a caramel flavor, but I would have to disagree. This was my first experience with Wegman’s tea, and for a grocery store tea, I was pleasantly surprised.
