I can’t seem to get a handle on this tea. Brewed with boiling water, it was strong and smoky; with cooler water, it came out light and maple-flavored. Either way, I enjoyed it as a morning treat with a dash of oat milk. The overall impression is kind of like English Breakfast with more complexity.

Flavors: Malt, Maple Syrup, Wood

Japanese black teas are always so interesting, because to me they taste completely different from any other black tea. The ones I’ve tried have almost reminded me of white tea with their hay and grain notes.

I’ve been drinking tea as a hobby for a few years, thought I should finally start leaving reviews. I’m most fond of teas on the darker end – black/red, roasted oolong, ripe puerh. I’m no good at translating a review into a numerical rating, so I usually don’t give one.
