I love the color of this tea. Love it. From the side it just looks like a light yellow, but from the top it’s pale green. Think of the lightest shade of seafoam ever. I hardly even want to drink it because it just looks so pretty in my glass teacup.
The taste is mellow and honey-sweet. There’s just a bit of the vegetal taste I associate with green tea. This is the tea I normally offer to friends who flinch at even the smell of strong green tea (which is still shocking to me — who doesn’t like good, strong sencha?).
