Remember Honey Smacks Cereal? This tastes and smells a lot like it (as thus I recommend a touch of honey). The Harney review is spot on.
Hard to rate this tea relative to other traditional teas (white, green, oolong, black) - it is not really an herbal either. We have a buckwheat festival in the area which is a pretty big deal, so I thought I would give soba a shot just for fun. Soba is unique to other teas; this is the first I've had it, and was pleasantly surprised. Great on cool days.
When I first got a 4 oz tin of this I opened it and was hit with a smell I wasn't very fond of. I put it away for awhile and finally decided to brew it. It's pretty good, sweeter than I thought it would be, along with bold nutty notes. Not for me, but if you like nutty tea, try it out.
this "tea" is wonderful. It is nutty with a somewhat substantial mouth-feel and it is the perfect thing for the evening. I am so, so glad that I tried this tisane, now my most favorite non-caffinated thing to drink.
