I wanted free shipping so I added this item to my order. We regularly use seaweed in our cooking/over rice in our household so I thought why not! This item comes in a white, sturdy paper bag inside a very cute cylinder container for better storage after opening. The flavor is a little salty (but not very) with some umami flavor. It's not overwhelming or particularly strong/pungent like some seaweeds. It tastes great just out of the bag (sprinkled some in my hand and ate it straight) and I bet it'll taste even better as a garnish or over rice. Can't wait to use it and see what the family thinks! The price isn't too bad and I'm glad I tried it! Might have to buy again when this bag runs out...which could be soon.
I have been using rice seasoning for a while and this one amazing, this one definitely has it's own distinct flavor that I have gotten used to. Not only good for rice, but eggs, miso - you name it!
i love the umami flavor it gives
they were right, this is great as a salt substitute. it is very flavorful
