An interesting sounding green tea, mainly because it is a rare tea from South Korea. The dry leaf has a mix of sizes and the aroma of some kind of fresh vegetable. The brew is BRIGHT neon green but cloudy- cloudy with all those nutrients, I would imagine. The flavor is almost like, blindfolded, I would guess that it is a cup of matcha and that surely doesn’t usually happen with all the green teas I taste, or really any of them that aren’t specifically matcha. So if you want the flavor of matcha, without actually drinking a cup of matcha, here you go. Otherwise, there is a hint of beans yet something fruity hiding in there. But mostly it tastes like matcha. Very fresh and lovely on a day when I’m physically feeling cruddy. Quite good – bright in color and flavor and reinvigorating. Better than I expected!
