The flavors in this tea are well-balanced, rounded and flow effortlessly throughout the palate. Vegetal notes start the cup turning slightly brisk towards the middle. Here, the flavor of smoke and grilled greens come through long enough to add depth to the liquor. It finishes on a fresh, clean note.

COMPLEMENTS

Sushi, crab cake, garden salad, hard cheeses, and fritters.

Lifted note of cooked spinach with hints of peat and toasted grains.

Truly enjoyable!!

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, Smooth Body, Unique Flavor Profile.

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

Best Served : Anytime, Morning.

A refreshingly clear vegetal taste combined with a hint of sweetness on the 2nd and 3rd steepings awaits the consumption of this tea. Be careful of over-steeping by temperature of water or time as this can result in a very powerful bitter taste. This is my first winter flush green tea and as such, I was not disappointed!! Kudos to you, TeaBox for your search for the best!!!

Good woody green

Likes : Freshness.

Dislikes : Strong.

Good woody green tea with strong flavor. I don't like Many nilgiri teas, but this one was good as it wasn't too strong. Woody flavor mellowed through the steeps and gave way to a softer, more relaxed flavor.

I like the benefits of green tea but not always the flavor. This one is wonderful. If you're on the fence about the flavor of green tea, I recommend trying this.

Зимний, зелёный, бюджетный

Неплохой зелёный, без изысков, но вполне питейный

A very nice tea that warms the stomic after a good hard work. It energies gently and gives you a nice small boost to get through the rest of the day.

Smokey/woody taste

Likes : Great Aroma, Smooth Body.

Best Served : Anytime.

This was pretty delicious compared to the rest of the green teas. This would be great with homemade whipping cream. Loved it. It's definitely a woodlands taste to it.

Unique "woodsy" suggestion of menthol and camphor

Likes : Unique Flavor Profile.

Infusion: 190 deg F (88 C), 2.3 g per 180 ml water, 3 minutes "Woodsy" aroma and flavor-- suggestive of menthol and camphor. Although not smoky, it reminded me of campfire. The color of the liquor is an attractive sunshine yellow. Only one infusion possible. Unique and interesting characteristics. Did not go well with sugar.
