This is a quality green tea! The leaves are made with just two leaves, no bud, and so the bitterness is kept to a minimum. The tea can be as light or as heavy as one would want it depending on brewing style, and either way it is delicious. The flavor could be a bit stronger (for my tastes) but I think lovers of good greens would appreciate this one!
