This tea is a very pleasant and delicate with a slightly dry after taste. While it isn’t terribly complex it’s nice and I enjoyed it. I’ve also found that it’s great iced and I think I actually prefer it that way honestly. Tea sacrilege I know but it’s really quite delicious. I’m quite fond of iced white teas and this green tea iced was almost as gentle as them.
