A thick translucent golden-green appearance. It’s tannins are mild and juxtaposed with a full body. Unobtrusive, but satiating. It’s a perfect daily drinker that won’t let you wanting. True and functional.

this is one of my staple greens, but I only drink it iced. Very refreshing, almost minty, medium bodied, not too assertive.

This is a very full-bodied and satiating tea. The color is a dark-heliodor, and the scent is rather earthy with woody notes. Not a bad choice for day-to-day usage.

Smooth, pleasant astringency, nice yellow-green color. The aroma is a ever so slightly floral green. I get two steepings from one pot, however the second is somewhat inferior but drinkable.
This is a nice “everyday” tea, it never bores me.
