Yay, a green tea that doesn’t just taste like water that I boiled spinach in! ;) The leaves are huge even when they are dry, and after they are steeped they are enormous. The liquor brews up super pale, and though the tea is slightly vegetal, it is also slightly sweet. That balance really works for me. The sweetness really only popped as the tea cooled down, but it makes the tea distinctive and enjoyable. I can only detect the sesame as an aftertaste; it’s certainly not a prominent flavor in the tea, but I’m not complaining.

Just to be upfront, I tend more toward black tea than green tea. But I try to be open-minded about trying new things, and this green tea is one I wouldn’t mind drinking more of in the future. Which is good, since I still have to finish off my sample.
