Good tea, but a bit bland for my palate.

A terrific buy: flavor, fullness, price

Best Served : Afternoon.

One of my favorite estates. This is very much closer to the Japanese greens than to Chinese ones.. More sharpness and less of the vegetal, long mouth fill. The price is terrific. It's unusual for a green in its slight wake up boost. The freshness adds so much lingering aftertaste.

Great morning tea.

Best Served : Morning.

The taste and aroma of this tea is definitely grassy and grainy but it wasn't bitter so I enjoyed it. The low caffeine level is a plus.

Brings back childhood springtime memories

Likes : Freshness, Unique Flavor Profile.

Dislikes : Weak.

Loved this tea - super heartwarming. The notes of earthiness are strong, but not in a bad way. Drinking this tea envelopes you in the springtimes as a kid where you'd play outside and eventually get covered in dirt and grass stains. That feeling - that pressed up against soft dirt and new grass, that's this tea in a nutshell. Reviewed as part of theTeabox subscription program.

A Standout Green Tea

Likes : Great Aroma.

Best Served : Anytime.

This one is truly a standout. High quality and very easy on the nose. I like to steep it just a bit shorter than I typically would with such a green tea. It is very flavorful and bright.

Delicious green tea with low caffeine content. Vegetal taste, interesting and not too strong. No bitterness at all if steeped correctly.

This was my first attempt with green tea, so I decided to go with a trusted tea source(Namring). I was surprised at just how good it was! I didn't think that green tea could be any good, but this one proved me wrong. I will definitely be ordering more!

Surprising

Likes : Great Aroma.

Refreshing, with very nice sweetness, like honey, and a very slight smokiness in the back of the throat. I don't have high expectations for green teas like this, but this one was surprisingly good.
