The leaves look more likely to be a Chinese green rather than a Japanese, I’d guess, but I could be wrong. The flavour of the tea isn’t a major issue, though, since the orange dominates pretty much everything I’m tasting here. I would have liked this to be just a teensy bit sweeter, but it’s certainly not as sharp as the lemon and lime flavoured green teas I’ve tried before. That’s definitely orange I’m tasting in this, rather than a more generic citrus flavour.

This really isn’t bad at all; it’s just mainly not the tea I was really in the mood for this afternoon so it’s pleasing me less than it probably would on some other day. I think it would be worth trying with a little honey added next time. I’ll keep experimenting with it.
