45 Tasting Notes
Very nice and very unique tea I keep having at an Italian restaurant here in Kyoto. Unfortunately they keep their teabags in a glass jar so I can never find out what brand it is but the tea itself is lovely with a definite but subtle pine flavor. I believe it also contains mint and some other root like substance but I can not place the taste exactly. It certainly keeps me coming back again and again.
I am not able to pin the flavor. It tastes like a very mild black with no tannin bitterness at all and is nice with milk. Seems like a very light desert tea. Not unpleasant, but without being able to associate the flavor with something in my mind it seems like there is a mental gap that affects the tea drinking experience.
