For the price, it gets the job done when I don’t want a “flavored” green tea. Very mellow flavor.

This tea is decent. It’s not glorious, but when I want to be lazy or brew Western Style, this is what I go to. The leaves are not of the best quality, but that’s kind of what you paid for with this tea. I only brew this in Western Style, the leaves would simply fall out of my Gaiwan since they have been chopped up a bit.

Overall, a decent tea, but not what I have everyday.

Not an exceptionally delicious tea, but the price is right and the taste is decent. It also serves me well when I want to experiment with flavorings, and I find that some cloves, cardamom, and orange zest spruce it up nicely.

Honestly, being a lover of lightish teas, I enjoy this tea. It’s really light! I don’t really drink any green teas, but I could totally get into this!

This tea gives off a wonderful scent of the farm. Tan in color. The tea dries out my mouth just a little after sipping, but despite that it’s a comforting flavor.

I wonder if I should steep it in slightly cooler water (I let the kettle sit a minute after boil with about 24 oz in the kettle). Also I let it sit for 4 minutes after steeping to cool down a bit.

Flavors: Barnyard

Had to give it to try when I saw it in the supermarket. If not for the tea, then for the nice metal box. :-) Tasting notes follow:
The scent of it is like real gunpowder. I don’t really find it great, to be honest.
Taste: Well, strange, but it’s not that bad. You can feel that its a green tea, and it’s quite a mild one, but it has some strange (bad?) aftertaste. Aside from that, it’s good.

Too weak for my tastes – better after along infusion.
Good served cold or iced.

Ok green tea, decent but unremarkable. Now mix it with an equal part of Twinings loose leaf Darjeeling and you get an interesting and tasty cup.
