A pretty nice tea
Anna – MA – March 13, 2020

Definitely some astringency and has a tendency to oversteep. It's a nice tea with a fresh taste, more seaweed than grass. Not buttery.

Not for everyone. Fishy and seaweed taste.
MATT – MI – March 02, 2020

I hate to give this a bad rating, but the description doesn't mention a fishy or seaweed flavor so was not expecting it. I didn't taste floral or melon notes. Just tastes like seaweed to me. But looking at other people's reviews, some people like that taste.

My new favorite green tea
Michael – TN – August 12, 2019

This one has an unusual seaweed-like strike before it mellows into the usual green tea character. There's a Japanese snack like a seaweed jerky, and that's exactly what the initial strike is like. It's different from other green teas, and might not agree with your palate. It's my new favorite, but I'd suggest a small initial order before a big one.

Elegant

To me, this is like a cross between a Japanese style and a Chinese style green tea. Good for people who like both and are looking for something new-- or don't like having to decide between them.

Outstanding green tea from Korea
Thomas – CA – May 27, 2019

This is one of my favorite green teas. Has a smooth flavor and mild astringency with a clean finish. Don't over steep- 2 1/2 minutes is plenty.
