I received this as part of my Yunomi monthly club package. I enjoy playing Japanese RPG’s and drinking authentic Japanese tea :) So that is my plan for this lazy Sunday.

The loose blend is rather large in size and whilst raw smells dry and herbal but nicely so. In other words it’s not too strong like herbal teas can be.

Steeped with the 10 minute recommended guide line and using boiling water. My sample was 10g so I only had one pot worth of this.

Once steeped it’s brown in colour with a mild herbal, ricey and earthen spicy aroma.

It’s very aromatic and Japanese in flavour. Medium strength with a refreshing taste similar to mint but more herbal based and milder. It also tastes toasted with a slight sour after taste.

A very interesting herbal blend that I’m considering purchasing more of. Would make a nice bedtime tea, or even morning tea.

I left a few mouthfuls to cool and forgot about it as I was so glued into my game. When I tasted what was left to finish my bowl I was met with a taste of coffee. It tasted like black coffee, no idea where it came from. More coffee tasting than other coffee teas I have tried. Weird.


I looked this one up to see the ingredients out of curiosity. It lists several herbals, but notably cats whiskers, Job’s tears, and heartleaf. Ha ha. Sounds like a witches cauldron brew for a longevity potion. As long as it works…


Haha, that’s hilarious, Lala…

My other press sample. It smells like being in the woods. Somewhat like leaves and trees. There is a very herbal flavour. Not what I’m used to, and… it’s, um, unique.
