This has a very unique flavor, which I find hard to describe. There’s an earthy, possibly smoky aspect to it that is unlike any traditional green tea I’ve had before. The flavor is strong and feels pretty complex to me, with what might be some umami notes, but what I think I’d mostly call it a pleasant bitterness at the finish. In any case, it is unlike any tea I have had before, and in a good way. I wouldn’t drink it daily, but it’s a nice interspersion as a change of pace.
