A great everyday green

This green Darjeeling is an excellent choice for an everyday green tea. The tiny leaves brew a medium yellow liquor with an earthy vegetal taste. A good fresh flavor at a great value.

Very nice green tea. Maybe little bitter taste at the end of sip. I jus add little sugar and lemon and it's perfect for me. I'm drinking it when ever i'm in mood for green tea because it has low caffeine.
