As far as grocery store teas go, greens are the worst bet. They are almost always astringent no matter how you steep them. Not only that, but they are served at resturants using boiling water. BOILING! For a green tea! Madness…what kind of establishment doesn’t know how to put a teabag into water properly. /rant
This is a fairly low end green with a lot of plain (and somewhat unpleasant) flavours. It is a tiny bit fruity, but mostly just grassy in a tropical way. I think it is similar to the flavour of raw green beans. Tends to be astringent and tannic. Can be improved with honey + lemon or by making a soy milk latte. I find soy milk + matcha or green tea makes a better latte than with other types of milk.
