I really enjoy this green tea. It has a delicate, clean, flavor without any of the bitter aftertaste that inexpensive green teas have. Preparing it properly per instructions (with water only 160 degrees Farenheit and steeping it for 2 minutes) was important, which is true for any green tea. I will buy it again.
