This is really a horse of a different color. A cup of this is dark and rich, aromatic, kind of sweet, and really tastes of....well, rice pudding. My wife and I have never had anything quite like it and, while it's not exactly an all-the-time tea, it makes a great after dinner or evening tea. It's like dessert and a cuppa at the same time, in the best way. It's got to be tried to be believed.
