This is a solid choice if you are looking for a green that has a little more of a sweet taste rather than vegetal. There is also a little bit of a nutty taste here. Overall, this tea is pretty light in nature. I wouldn’t mind having something very similar to this with a more “full” flavor. Although this is a solid choice, I still prefer Sencha if I am going Japanese green.

This tea can be steeped about 3 times. I honestly only go twice. The third time simply fees too weak for me. It also shouldn’t be ignored. I let steep an extra 30(ish) seconds and I felt it go bitter fairly quick.

Flavors: Nutty, Sweet
