Superb green tea
Susan – OR – April 13, 2020

I usually drink black tea, not green. However, when this sample arrived my sister tasted it and was awed, so I tasted it also, and also loved it. It's somehow different from run-of-the-mill greens, but I can't explain why. It has now become one of my regularly repeating orders.

Good, strong cup

I really liked this green tea. It has a strong flavor and a strong kick of caffeine. The second brew was a little weaker than the first, but not by much.

Tastes like corn

Looks like I'm an outlier, but I'm simply in awe at how much this tastes like corn

This is first rate. Delivers a round, sweet delicate cup that goes down real smooth. Echoes of the vegetal world yet very inviting. Take care not to brew too long, try 1 minute 30 seconds, as later tannins kick in and then it’s a whole different experience, not as velvety but more hearty.

The bonus sample was a stunning win. I'm ordering this with my next shipment. I like the slight toastiness and bitterness very much indeed.

I'm so impressed by this tea. Like other reviewers have mentioned, it came as a bonus sample with my last order. I've been testing a bunch of green teas recently, looking for a good every-occasion tea, and this is surprisingly the best of all. I brewed it as directed - not too long - and it leaves a very full flavor, that is also somehow delicate.

Worth trying!

Thankfully it came as a sample (instead of the fearsome Bergamot sample which can be best used to flavor cheaper tea bags by storing them together). ZGP6 2019, is one of the better green teas I've had. The reviews are spot on too. It may need a delicate brewing method to avoid astringency. It still tastes excellent if you overdo it though.

love it

I received this as a bonus in my last order. It is great. Will be on my next order.

Brisk, tasty, delicious
KRISTEN – ME – May 17, 2019

I love this green tea. Its flavor is direct and grassy, slightly bitter, just the way I like it.

Such a nice surprise
Cani – GA – January 21, 2019
