This tea tastes so FRESH and has a clearly SPRING vegetable lilt to it that I'm finding hard to describe but i LIKE very much!! Full of flavor that I find unique--well-balanced and straightforward in its individual, almost sweet, taste...very definitely a white tea..light and airy and CLEAN tasting...I could drink this all day every day.
The smell was pleasant. I wasn't overly impressed with it though. While sharing it with some friends none of us really felt like it was wowing. It was subdued in taste and became an after thought.
