Got this as a sample & decided to give it a try even though I’d been thinking I’m not one for Japanese green teas. This smelled heavenly dry & steeped; lovely mango/tropical fruity aroma. The taste is more lightly green with a fruity undertone. Some astringency, but not bitter. Rejuvenated my curiosity in Japanese greens, but I think I’ll stick to the flavored Senchas.
