I liked this one, but not so much I think I’d order again. It’s really unusual looking and textured—like green straw. Whiffing the bag the smell reminds me of mulch. The liquor is very light, pale green, and even steeping at 3 minutes—one minute over the minimum—with a generous amount it’s a pretty light, subtle tea. Not vegetal, but for the life of me I’m having a hard time distinguishing it from the other green teas tried from my recent order such as Anji Baicha, High Mountain Green and Iccha Kariban. Slightly sweet, very mellow.
