Very good tea, tastes excellent with honey. I think the recommended 3 minute steep time is too much and results in a more bitter flavor. Good tea for repeated steeps. I think the gyokuro yamashiro is a little better however.

It has a slight spiciness characteristic of a chai that I do not like. I think the flavors overpower the green tea too much.

Very pleasantly light green tea taste, but can take on a horrible grassy flavor if you over steep.

I know what you mean, and it’s pretty bad! Also if you brew multiple times it can start to stink easily in your pot. It also leaves a lot of residue at the bottom of the cup.
