From Teaflection

This refreshing steamed green tea from Japan has a liquor that is light brownish yellow . Tasting sweet and full bodied with a roasty aroma, this traditional Japanese green tea appears as “popcorn tea,” due to its combination of young tea leaves and popped puffs of fire-roasted rice.

MilitiaJim found it weak, I found it fine, a little mellower, sweeter, and smoother.

We drained 2000ml very fast, I think we like it!

In fact we made a second and third fresh pot of tea, and they were both gone in short order. We love this tea.

I was surprised at the shipping packaging – there was an invoice and a wad of paper, but not enough to keep the tea from shifting around in the larger shipping box. The tea was undamaged by this and I wonder if the lack of padding was due to the tea choice.

Included in my package was a small tea ball, I really have enough odd tea making gadgets and was surprised by the inclusion until i went back and looked at the company website again. I will be giving this away to anyone in need of a tea ball.

I was amused by the custom packaging, it has my name on it! This made me feel special, and is defiantly a way to be memorable to your customers.

I received this tea for free for the purpose of reviewing the tea and posting my thoughts of it on my blog. I made sure to try it on multiple days, in between other teas, to make sure my thoughts on the tea were consistent.
