I never had this tea before so i went completely off the description, and they totally nailed it! It was exactly what i was expecting and was delicious. Will be ordering more soon.
This is probably the best tea i've had outside of China. Beautiful
The description of a sweet and nutty taste for this particular tea didn’t really ring true when I and a few others tried it. In fact the Sencha green tea was much easier to drink than the Kukicha... I’m not sure if maybe I may have done something wrong while brewing this, since it’s not the same as Sencha, or if this batch of tea was just bad, or if maybe I’m wrong... I hope I’m wrong, honestly, considering how much each of these cost.
