What is it?
This is a fabulous take on a classic - Gunpowder Green Tea at its best. During processing, some teas (particularly Green Tea and Oolong) are rolled to protect their flavour and keep the nutrients in.
This leads to a fantastic tasting brew which is incredibly healthy and probably one of the best green teas around.
What Does It Taste Like?
A very deep, warm and thick flavoured green tea. This is the most full flavoured green tea I've tried. If anyone ever asked you what Green Tea tastes like, you should point them in this direction.
Really awesome, any bitterness gives way to a depth that will leave you wanting more. Incredibly addictive.
What Does It Smell Like?
A green tea that smells somewhat more herbal thak others. It as a certain sweetness to it that compliments the overall deeper flavour of the tea.
approx 20mg per cup (about a quarter of a strong coffee)
Where Does It Come From?
This tea is grown in Zhejiang Province, China.
