Aroma comes from added flavors, not from the tea leaves, really. The flavor is basically spearmint and lemongrass, with little green tea flavor to be found. This is kind of a novelty tea, but nice on rare occasions. This tea could have broad appeal, but precisely because there is very little actual tea flavor.

The Tazo website describes this tea as being the special secret of Buddhist monks in some remote region of China. Then in another place, it states that the green tea leaves are from Zhejiang province. Now, Zhejiang is a well-developed and prosperous region of China on the east coast, anything but remote. I drank tea with Buddhist monks in that province on numerous occasions, and it was always just traditional Chinese loose leaf teas such as green, wulong, or red tea.
