This is an interesting tea. This has a thick and velvety mouthfeel, almost like a broth. I think that contributes to the umami character I pick up with it. It isn’t salty, but it reminds me of drinking a warm, salty broth. There are general vegetal notes to it as well—nothing specific, but just a general vegetal flavor.

Overall, I enjoy it but am not overwhelmed by the flavor. It’s the type of tea that I would have to be in the mood for in order to have again, but I can see it being very appealing for those times when I am in the mood for its unique character.

Flavors: Broth, Umami, Vegetal

This actually sounds like the kind of tea I’d like as broth for my ramen noodles.

Ooh, I hadn’t thought about that, but I bet you’re right! My son eats ramen by the case, so I’ll have to take one of his packs and try it. I could see the two working well together—thanks!

I can’t use the included flavor packets because MSG is one of my migraine triggers, so I just use tea for the broth instead! Oddly enough there are a lot of very “savory” sorts of teas that work very well for it!

My tea habits generally depend on my mood and the season but, in general, my preferred teas are black teas (especially those grown in Sri Lanka and India) and oolong teas. Unless noted in my review, I brew my tea western style and do not use additives (milk/cream, sugar, etc.).

I am definitely not an expert when it comes to tea, so I apologize if my reviews differ from the experiences you’ve had with any of the teas I have logged.

Please feel free to contact me and let me know if you have a favorite that I have to try! :)
