Please note: This tea is grown in accordance with USDA organic specifications, but due to new documentation requirements from the CFIA, we were unable to have the tea certified in North America. As such, this tea is being sold as conventional with a hefty discount.
A simple pleasure offering bold up-front flavour, with some astringency soon followed by a pleasant sweetness.
When you want an everyday green tea to sip on, consider this an excellent option!
