    Like a cup of the ocean

    Posted by DNA on 25th Feb 2024

    I bought this and it sat in my cupboard for a while as I built up some nerve to try it. It's almost like drinking a cup of the ocean, but in a good way. Really interesting and oddly satisfying. I'm all ocean all the time, so there is some built in inherent bias, but the flavor is great. Very kombu forward but just an interesting, savory drink that I'll have regularly.

    This is a very unique tea

    It reminds me of miso soup. I like it with my meal or after. It also works really well as a seasoning and has a salty flavor. Would work as salt replacement Will buy this again in the future.
