This tea is light, a little bit nutty and very smooth. I love the light green color – it looks beautiful in the small, Asian-style tea cups – I put it in a light cup since seeing it is part of the experience! In Japan they drink this all the time, since it goes with everything and my Japanese friends swear it is key to their slim figures (though I think genes play a major role!) I find that if I steep it incorrectly (ie. water is too hot) it gets quite bitter. I could see some people finding that this is too light and watery, but I find that refreshing. Definitely a part of my daily tea routine!
