I love this tea! Just like the organic Gyokuro, it has an excellent taste, without any hint of bitterness. This is a refreshing tea that I enjoy drinking several times during the day. Because of Hibiki-an's teas, I actually look forward to my daily tea time. I am very glad I found Hibiki-an's site when I was looking for Japanese green tea. I'm going to recommend Hibiki-an's teas to my friends and relatives and I look forward to many years of enjoying Hibiki-an's teas.
