"I'd highly recommend this tea. I've sampled several teas from other companies in this price range and the South Island green tea is my favorite. I prefer full-flavored green tea and this one does not disappoint. It has a fruity aroma and a hearty flavor with a nutty aftertaste" Nicholas Jankowski

"Upton's review nailed it. A pungent, brisk, and refreshing cup of green tea. I feel like less is more when it comes to steeping this particular lot, so experiment a little if it's too overpowering for you. It's growing on me more and more with each cup."
