From My Green Tea

Pan fire roasted caffeine-free stem and leaf tea. The browned leaves are imbued with a savory fragrance. A great nighttime tea.

Same ingredients as Kukicha but caffeine-free, withered and pan fire roasted. In addition to the fresh nutty flavor produced by the roasting process, the resulting decaffeination from the extensive roasting time makes Kuki Houji perfect for children and all who are very sensitive to caffeine.

Herbal and Decaf TTB.

I’m not sure why someone added this to the box, since it’s not herbal or decaf, but I decided to give it a try anyway. It tastes pretty much like I would have expected a roasted green tea to taste. Vegetal, a slight hint of bitterness, and a bit of roastiness. It’s not bad, but not really my cup of tea.

Flavors: Bitter, Roasted, Vegetal

This tea has a very grassy, woodsy scent to it and it tastes the way roasted chestnuts smell. I definitely taste a nutty (but not chestnut) background.

Edit: This is definitely only a hot tea, I thought I finished my cup and then realized there was still tea left 20 minutes later. Definitely not a fan of this after it cools D:

Tasting # 1 – Steep Time 2 Minutes
Very light, tea is a light yellow color similar to some green teas. I can smell the toasted leaves more than I can taste them.

Tasting #2 – Steep Time 5 Minutes
Good toasted flavor, not at all like any black tea even though the color is more reminiscent of black teas. There is a distinct creamy mouth feel that lingers after the tea is gone.

Tasting #3 – Steep Time 8 Minutes
Strong toasted flavor and aroma. There is a slight astringency, but barely noticeable over the toasty flavor.

COLD BREW
3 Tea Bags, 32oz Water
I’ve cold brewed this several times with 4 tea bags and it has consistently come out as too strong, the only tea I actually have to dilute. But 3 tea bags is just right. Smooth and silky, the roasted quality isn’t too strong. That is usually what gets me, the overwhelming roasted flavor doesn’t taste roasty after a while, just pungent. But when just right it’s delicious and refreshing.

Flavors: Roasted, Walnut
