This tea came in very pretty packaging a translucent green bag with a velum like sticker with the label done in such a way that it looks handprinted in black and red. The label is in Japanese but someone at the store told me that it tells you that the tea is organic and that it was grown and packaged at the same farm. This tea has been open so It doesn’t quite taste as sweet anymore but I remeber really liking it when I first had it. Just be careful with brewing temperatures and leaf amounts as it contains bancha and can get bitter and astringent if not treated properly.

The tea is a nice mixture of bancha and popped and roasted rice coated in a fine dusting of Macha. When brewed it is a translucent lime/yellow green. When brewed properly the tea tastes both sweet and slightly
bitter at the same time with notes of clover and bitter greens such as spinach overlaying the nutty taste of the rice. When newer I remember the macha contributing a sweet fresh greens taste, which may be in the clover taste now. The tea has a creamy thick mouth feel with a tingling sensation at the front of the mouth. It is an interesting mix of sweet, vegetal and earthy.
