This is a grocery store quality tea, so it isn’t the most amazing green. I picked this up because I love the coconut macadamia rooibos from this company, and I’m always up for Hawaiian grown teas. I’m not 100% sure this was tea grown in Hawaii, but it was packaged by the Hawaii Coffee Company and the back of the box has a map of the islands on it.
This brews up darker than most greens I have had. The dry leaf and brewed liquid smell very green. Vegetal, notes of seaweed and spinach. Slightly astringent in the aftertaste. A bit of umami. It tastes like any other grocery store bagged green (abeit, less awful that a few brands I have tried). I wouldn’t go out of my way to try this, but if you enjoy bagged green teas, you might want to try it if it is offered.

I lost my tin of steamed mulberry leaf from Silk Road, so I purchused this when I went to a cool grocery store in Hawaii to buy Butler’s soy curls. Anyway, I wouldn’t normally buy mulberry leaf tea in teabags, however I really like mulberry tea and I’m desperate.
I steeped 1 teabag in 500 mL hot water, let it steeped more than 5 minutes, probably more like 8 minutes. It is really good strong. I love the delicate green flavour, buttery, umami, reminiscent of toasted oolongs or steamed green tea.
Flavors: Butter, Toasty, Umami
