Very smooth with a gentle sweetness. One of the best things about this tea is that it's almost impossible to oversteep to the point of bitterness - worst case scenario, you'll just end up with something grassier, more like green tea than white. It also makes a light, crisp iced tea.

I can't really pick out the advertised grape notes, and I was initially disappointed with just how delicate the flavor is. But I've come to appreciate it more.

Not such a bargain, though. The whole, unprocessed leaves take up more space than green or black teas, so there's less tea in the tin AND you have to use twice as much per cup. It's a nice treat, not something I'd drink several times a week.
