This is my first review...ever..so cut me some slack:

I am new to pursuing specific qualities in tea - after being let down by my favorite big-name tea brand, I am trying out teas that are farmed more responsibly, and processed more simply. Mellow Monk meets those initial standards, as far as I can tell, sans trave...

This was a great tea! It has a hearty vegetable flavor satisfied my taste buds like no other, and the smell was fantastic. I also loved the cheery bright green color!

This is a mellow tea, and probably my favorite sencha I've ever tried, and I also think it is one that would have broad appeal.
