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 travelling to the farms and taking a tour!

The important stuff:

The aroma and flavor remind me of Japan, leaving that pleasant, herbaceous, green tea taste in your mouth. I have brewed this several mornings in a row, for 90 seconds on the first brew, and 60 seconds on the second. I find it hard to describe the way the flavor changes on the second brew, but it is a pleasant more full-bodied flavor.

Overall, I'm very pleased with this tea, and the price is fantastic.

Welcome to RateTea, and thank you for your first review!

I am definitely a big fan of this tea, and there seems to be a pretty broad consensus on its quality--it currently holds the #1 slot for green teas on our site and is hovering around #3 on the top 10 list of all teas!

I also find it resteeps very well.

I look forward to reading more of your reviews! Let me know if you have any questions about the site, or about tea. I'm the main editor, so you can reach me through RateTea's contact form as well as comments here!
