I really enjoyed the smell of the leaves in the tin, although I was a little surprised by the slightly sweet scent I got. As a straight green tea, I wasn’t expecting sweet.
Good thing since there isn’t a hint of sweet once the leaves are steeped. the wet leaves have lost most of their scent and the tea is hardly scented at all which is fine.
I primarily drink flavored teas so rating and describing this one is a little harder to do. I would drink it again, absolutely. Just maybe not on a Friday morning. Maybe it’s more of a Monday morning, “Oh God, there’s so much week left!” tea.
It does have a nice, delicate flavor. It isn’t overpowering or bitter. I’m ok with it, but not wowed.
