Reviews & Ratings
This has become my favorite tea and I have enjoyed it since 2007 when I ordered my seven tea cakes until today (December 26, 2015) when I finished my last tea cake and ordered another 7. It has become more cherished each year of aging. I very much appreciate and enjoy the complex flavors of this tea and allow my tea to brew in the tea pot throughout the day until I have consumed the last drop. It has a pleasant smell of herbs and a refined and substantial green tea flavor one might expect from a fine tea liqueur. As one would expect it starts out with a light color with the first cup progressing to a darker hue and stronger edge as it steeps in the pot with the flavor and body growing stronger and fuller. Simply a beautiful, complex and flavorful tea.
