Limited supply, limited time, oh no! Toss one in your order if they're still available. I just got my package and cut it open ... greeted by a gentle whiff of green and fresh, only very slightly grassy, odor.
The tea brews to a pale yellow barely green liquid even after almost 3 minutes. The taste is soft and slightly sweet, with a dry-mouth astringency at the finish but zero bite. Subtle and peaceful.
It's quite a treat. I think I'll get a few more :-)
