Review of Kenya Green Tea

The leaf of this tea is broken in large, rounded chunks, unlike the shape of any loose-leaf green tea that I've seen yet.

Brewed as instructed, it produces a cup with a clear, golden green. Flavor is clean and crisp without being sharp. Seems to have a slight cooling quality, very refreshing. If steeped too long, however, it can become astringent.

Aroma is mostly vegetal, like asparagus, with undertones of wintergreen, and a suggestion of fruit.

Interesting, but not an all-time favorite. This tea leaves an almost bubble gum like quality in the finish, I think perhaps due to the wintergreen tones, which I like very much in black teas but I find do not go well with the character of this tea. I also found this tea to be pricey for its quality. Quality-wise, I think this tea is on par with a number of Chinese teas which are much cheaper.
