I usually dislike green teas because they taste smoky, but there's no smokiness here. Weak, vegetable-like aroma, with a rich, nutty, vegetable flavor that's strong and yes, a bit bitter. I put a touch of sugar in and it was very good.

I was very intrigued by this tea. I dislike green tea, but this had toasted rice and bits of popcorn in it. It's very interesting-looking, loose. I was really interested in how it tasted.
It smells like popcorn or rice cakes and cooked greens - maybe spinach or kale. Not a bad aroma, but not one I associate with tea....
