This is my go to green tea at present and I’m never disappointed. Vibrant flavors of freshly cut grass, asparagus, fresh spinach and so on. The second steep seems to bring out the most. Never harsh or astringent, good mouthfeel. Maybe not as subtle as some of the fine Japanese greens, but I love it and look forward to the Spring harvest.

I prefer traditional over flavored. I tend to lean towards oolongs and green teas, although experimenting with some more robust varieties. New to high quality, artisanal teas and look forward to learning about new teas to try on this site.
