From the Samurai TTB.
I was a little bit on the fence about whether to try this one, since it didn’t really have much of an aroma. Also the mineral notes that Shanie O Maniac mentions in her note didn’t appeal to me much. But I woke up this morning and wanted a good black tea with breakfast so I decided to give it a go.
Unfortunately, it didn’t live up to my breakfast fantasy. It’s not bold enough and there is something lacking in the flavor that I just can’t place. There is a roasted quality that’s interesting though – it reminds me of an oolong actually. Oolongs aren’t my favorite, so maybe that’s why I’m not digging this one so much.
So yeah, it’s not bad but it’s not great either. Still, it’s a bit of a caffeine boost to help get me going this morning, which I sorely needed.
