The tea's roasted nut aroma begins to relax me before I even begin sipping my tea. It actually reminds me of the roasted walnut oil that I love so much at the olive oil stores. Upon sipping, I immediately taste the nuttiness coming from the toasted rice. I do not get a heavy green tea taste. While I love green tea, those who are not so enamored with it may actually enjoy this tea and find it as a stepping stone to other green teas. For me, it is all about that roasted nut flavor. Although this is not the best green tea that I have enjoyed, I am loving the nuttiness and I like that it comes in packets for the days when I do not want to mess with my loose leaves.
You cannot beat the antioxidant punch of green tea. Plus, tea really helps with some of my allergy symptoms. Of course, I would be remiss if I did not also mention the caffeine pick-me-up that I sometimes derive from tea (and this tea does deliver!). I do drink a lot of tea for these reasons and am glad to have found an easy, affordable tea to use alongside my other favorites.
