I used to not like tea at all, but then I had black tea and herbal tea and I realized that it's just green tea that I don't like. The taste and aroma have just never been pleasant to me. I was originally not going to try this tea when it came with my shipment, but the description was intriguing to me and so I decided to give it a shot and I am so glad that I did! This is, by far, the best green tea I have ever had in my life. It neither smells nor tastes like the bedding you put in a hamster cage, as every other green tea I've tried has. And thought is is described as popcorn tea, it also doesn't smell like popcorn (a huge plus to me as that's another scent that is unpleasant to me) and instead smells like rice, a scent I love. But it does taste like popcorn, with a subtle rice undertone. The resulting flavor is light and pleasant and generally the best green tea I have ever had in my life. I would definitely purchase this tea again as well as recommend it to anyone who is even slightly intrigued by the notion of this tea. Get it! You won't regret it!
Super fun tea! It does taste like popcorn & rice, but somehow that flavor totally works! Great choice for when you want to branch out & liven up your usual cup of green.
