"My favorite. Not overly vegetal but still a nice strong flavor. For an extra treat I sometimes toss in a bit of spearment. I'm sensitive to caffeine and this tea works just fine for me." Jeff Banaszak

"A very unique tea. This tea is made from stems rather than from leaves, and it has a nice "twiggy" taste to it. It is also very mild and a little sweet. A great mid-afternoon tea for relaxing." Bill Carson

"Nicely flavored green tea but ONLY if a lot is used to make a cup (5 - 6 times that of TJ16). Otherwise, the tea is very weak."
