I generally do not favor "vegatal" and "fresh grass" in a green tea but the "sweet pea" in the description suggested that I give this tea a try based on my experience with the Sanixia white tea. My banko clay kyusu seems to be the perfect way to prepare this offering, and the result is a highly pleasing balance among vegetal, fresh grass, and mild sweetness. I wish that I'd ordered more than 50 gm.
I purchased it after reading Noah's review. I also didn't like green tea because they're always bitter and not tasty. BUT THIS ONE IS NOT. Very smooth, sweet, vegetal (reminds me of a spinach soup? Forgive my rookie tongue), fresh, tasty. I like brewing it western & grandpa style. I would definitely repurchase this green tea!
This is now my go-to every morning tea. It’s deeply satisfying, both to my soul and to my pocketbook!
So light and subtle!!! A totally different experience from most green tea that's available in America.
Noah's review of the flavors was very accurate.
I'm normally hesitant around green teas because of their bitterness, which I'm not the biggest fan of. I normally lean towards oolong tea for that reason. But I decided to pick up some of this Sanxia green because of its affordability, and it's really tasty! No bitterness, even when brewing at a much higher temperature than I would normally brew a green at. It fills your nose with that sweet pea flavor, a little fruity and a little vegetal. Give it a try if you can get your hands on it!
