I always have trouble getting the ratio of tea leaves to water right with this one. I seem to add too much tea to the water. It’s easy to do with the tightly rolled pellets. I need half or less of what I add for other greens. While I say that, I am a big fan of this when I brew it strong. It is a great tea for multiple steeps and tastes like what I view as a quintessential green tea, only maybe a little more of a roasted flavor. A faint sweetness, only a slight “vegetal” edge, the liquid is an amber color, darker than many greens I drink. This will stay one of my go-to green teas for its drinkability and price.

I only recently started my fascination with tea. I was drinking 4+ cups of coffee a day, and the caffeine intake was starting to affect me noticeably. So I quit coffee, bought some loose leaf black tea and have since grown to love many varieties of tea, mostly unflavored.
