Now this is green tea! Wonderful grassy flavor. Slightly bitter tang. A nutty, just lightly aftertaste follows with the grass. These days I tend to avoid tea bags because of the CTC method of processing but The Book of Tea is comprised of all tea bags save for one loose leaf tin. However, not all tea bags are made equal. Take the tea I have in my cup at the moment; Sencha Uji by Lupicia. While it still is a bit sad to see how torn the leaves are (sorry I have a thing for whole leaves) I am still impressed by the green color and fact that they aren’t all completely torn. The flavor is quite enjoyable. When I think of what a high end green tea tastes like it’s something like this.
