The leaves of this tea are a mediocre grade – small to mid-sized and often broken.
They have a weak vegetal scent, plus citrus of course.
Astringency and bitterness are minimal. If there is any astringency or bitterness, it’s nicely controlled by the citrus.
This tea’s flavors are well-balanced, but they just aren’t that great. The green tea itself is fine – weakly vegetal and smooth. And the citrus helps pick up for the inadequacies of the tea itself. It holds up pretty well chilled.
For a decaf, this is quite decent, and I’m slowly working my way through my bag. I won’t order more, but I don’t particularly regret the purchase.
