Flavour of the tea was quite weak, not much oomph in it. Could neither detect much of the oolong leaves nor any roasted taste. Felt like we were drinking extremely watered down tea.

At least the highlight of this drink was supposed to be the Kurozu konyaku. Kurozu is actually black vinegar, and Kakuida’s version has been aged for 3 years and infused with real fruit extracts. I didn’t actually know this prior to drinking the tea, so I had an interesting sensory experience when I first sucked up the jelly bits! The jelly was vinegary and sour, but also had fruity sweetness to it. Very nice, and went well with the tea. The beverage was unique, super refreshing and I enjoyed every sip of it. Perfect to cool off on a hot day ✌🏻
