This was one of my first forays into green tea. I remember thinking to myself “If all green teas taste like grass then I don’t think I like green tea.” I quickly learned most Japanese green teas taste grassy because they are steamed, as opposed to a variety of Chinese green tea which is pan fried. The moral of this story is if you like fresh grassy tastes that pop out at your taste buds then you will love this tea. If you like tea that has more subtle flavor that is less grassy in taste go for a chinese green tea instead. I can’t give this tea the worst rating because it is good quality for the type of tea it is, I just don’t like steamed green teas.
