(There are two versions of this tea: bagged and loose. This is for the bagged)
I don’t get all the hate for this tea.
I find all the characteristics of a green that I want out of it, even though its not as remarkable as some of the others I have in my cupboard. There’s a calm and dark yellow, slightly muddled green color to the brew that isn’t gross-looking or questionable. It looks mediocre and I’m okay with that. I get that slight “tint”, or “spark” that I get with really good green teas but not as powerful. You know that thing I’m talking about, its almost like you touched your tongue to a battery but not as intense. Its not grassy but theres something vegetal and calm about it. Its nice. Its out of a bag. So what.
I think this is a pretty good tea for what it is, which apparently, based on other reviews and opinions, isn’t much. Oh well.
