The description on the label describes this as a “soft, floral, Japanese tea.” The one Japanese tea I had before this was Senja, and I hated it. It tasted to me like water vegetables had been boiled in—much too vegetal, too seaweedy for me tastes. I like this one much, much more. It’s comparable to the two green teas I’ve tried I do like—Cloud & Mists and Pi Lo Chun. A little softer, more delicate than either—not vegetatal nor unpleasantly grassy. My aunt said she like it a little more than either.
