Tokyo

Japan's capital city of Tokyo inspired our delightful green tea blend of Bancha with toasted sesame seeds and caramel flavors. Recalling our many visits there, we wanted to create a taste reminiscent of the city's impeccably presented desserts.

Disappointingly bitter
Average Review:

As Carol mentioned in September 2015, the appearance of the tea in my sample was nothing like the photo accompanying the listing. The leaves were tiny and needle-like, and bright green. I steeped my sample @180 for a bit over a minute. While the caramel aroma was encouraging, the flavor was bitter. I doubt I will buy this again unless the rave reviews start showing up again in a future season.

Excellent tea but quality poor lately.
Average Review:

This has always been my favorite tea. It's smooth and refreshing, and the caramel adds just the right note. The last several times I've purchased it, however, I've ended up throwing most of it out because more than 50% of the container has been powder, not the big leaves in the photo. The fact that I keep buying it after I throw out most of the container is a testament to how good this tea can be. I hope the quality will be restored to what it was.

New favorite green
Average Review:

I got a sample of this along with a few some flavored blacks and interesting looking greens. This one surprised me. The caramel flavors really shine through, and the sesame is a sublime touch. Will definitely be ordering this one again.
