It IS best to simply drink and enjoy this tea without expectation or judgment. A very zen notion. It’s just about the only green tea I drink and I have it almost every day. Needs nothing added or taken away. Best to drink with eyes closed.

Select pan-fired green tea from Zhejiang province in China, artfully combined with lemongrass, spearmint and a hint of lemon essence. Zen’s distinct green tea flavor accented with lemon and mint is impossible to express with words. Best simply to experience its sweet, lingering aftertaste.

Although extremely hot when I first tried it (not a fault of the tea, just Starbucks), once at an acceptable temperature the tea became quite enjoyable. The lemon flavors give the tea a refreshing punch that cleanses the palate without overpowering the tea. The subtle mint flavors are a nice touch as well. It is a little generic in flavor as far as green teas go, but it seems like a decent option if you’re looking for a green tea.
