This green tea was impressive. The dried leaves are delicate, smell of fresh-cut grass, and open elegantly in my teacup.
I had to drink three cups before I felt I could write a review. The flavor is so light and clean, and I drank it all too quickly, for me to have done it justice with just one tasting. The tea is fresh, simple, cleansing to the palette. There is absolutely no bitterness to be found, even when steeping a tad longer than recommended. The lack of bitterness in aftertaste, just before the sweet bit, may make it seem like less of a green tea experience, but I assure that it is not.
I personally believe that sugar and even honey could ruin the delicate essence of the drink. Maybe a smidge of a light honey would be okay.
Overall, this is the smoothest and lightest green tea I have had the opportunity to enjoy. I will certainly be drinking this for years to come.
