Oh, I’m so not a green tea fan. I apologize for that however I do my best to test these teas because someone out there is looking for me to find a perfect green tea. This is a very strong tea with a strong scent of asparagus; it had a very green or vegetal scent. The taste is very similar, very strong with a medium green shade.


Hot Tea / Iced Tea Taste Facts: This tea is a strong hot tea and I can imagine just as strong iced. I don’t think a sweetener would be a good match for this tea, but I am sure you can try. Very strong tea with an extremely strong scent and taste.



Till next Tea….
