description

This green tea is a rare spring flush specialty that is refreshingly fragrant with notes of fresh greens and legumes. It has a light body and is well coupled with a smooth and brisk quality. The liquor comes alive in the middle with soft tones of steamed corn which adds a layer of sweetness to it. Earthy, woody hints appear toward the end, giving way to a clean finish.
