The luminous green color of this tea amazed me. The flavor was unusual to me at first, having a sweet vegetal quality, but after drinking this tea for a few days I found myself looking forward to it. There is something extremely special about this brilliant green cup, the picture on the description page does not do it justice. Like so many of my favorite things in life this tea just gets more interesting as my palate gets to know it. The only downside to this tea is that I can't afford to drink it very often, but thank you teagschwender for finding this precious and beautiful tea.
