This is good and high quality tea. Gunpowder tea is very unique and rich flavor. Smell is very pleasant. Taste is very velvety and there is no bitterness at all! Instant favorite tea I will buy more!

This stuff is delicious!

A very nice mellow green tea. It produced a golden liquor which tasted a little like apple and fresh grass. An enjoyable experience. This is also great for making Kombucha!

Just a decent tea to have when you just need to have some decent tea. Probably my favorite of Twinning’s loose-leaf tins, though I’ve yet to try the Prince of Wales Tea. Tastes like vegetables sprinkled with gunpowder.

Je laisse infuser ce thé vert un peu plus longtemps.
Ainsi, la force du thé vert permet de sortir agréablement du déjeuner. Je pense même qu’il aide à digérer.

I leave this green tea infuse a little longer.
Thus, the strength of green tea helps out nicely for lunch. I even think it helps to digest.

The second green tea I ever had. It is no longer up in the top 5, but I like it enough to use for sentiment sake.

My absolute favorite for a green tea (plain, that is). The leaves are good quality leaves, and whole too, and they unfurl after the first infusion. It has a delicious, vegetal flavor, but be wary: The instructions tell you to steep it for 5 minutes, which makes it much too bitter. Between 2 and 4 minutes seems to be where the sweet spot is. Otherwise, I really recommend this tea! It works for about 2 to 3 infusions for me.
