I really do not care for this tea. For me it is too grassy.i I don’t like the rice flavored overtones either. It is stronger than the Celestial seasonings matcha green tea which is also not a fav of mine.
I really like this tea although I read a review by a “pro” who gave it really low marks. The tea is pleasant, not overly grassy tasting and is for me a great everyday tea. I don’t sweeten this tea or others I dring typically.
