Glendale Exotic Winter Frost Green Tea

description

Don't be fooled by the light color or the delicate make of this green tea. For, its flavor and aromas will keep your senses alert, so to say. The fragrance from the cup readies you for a gentle, floral-leafy tea, but a sip quickly reveals that it is anything but. It tastes robust, feels big and ample in the mouth, and strikes the senses with heavy yet smooth vegetal flavors.

good but simple

As described it is a straightforward tea, very light. Important to note that it requires more leaves than some others. I found that adding even more leaves than recommended accentuated the floral element.
