I really like this tea! I’m inexperienced with unflavored green tea, however, because it seems difficult to find where I live. I bought this at whole foods in the bulk tea section. I steeped each batch of leaves 3-4 times and while they began to lose flavor around the end, it’s possible that this is my own fault for not properly adjusting the steep temperature and time for each steep.

Also worth mentioning is that there is no temptation for me to add anything at all to my tea once I taste it. Usually I want to add a touch of honey or light agave to my tea, but not this tea. There was no bitterness, even though some of the leaves escaped my porcelain steeping-strainer-cup-thing (what are these called?) and I let them sit overnight in the bottom of my unfinished teacup. I drank some in the morning before running out the door and was surprised to find that my tea wasn’t bitter in the slightest! I will be buying this tea again.
