    I'm a fan of Japanese green teas. This one is excellent. Like the description says,this green is amazing hot brewed, cold brewed, iced....anyway you make it, it's great!—CJ
    I am a fan of green teas, but this one took me by surprise. It had a very grassy flavor and smelled like spinach when brewed hot. I thought maybe I brewed it too long, so I spilled it and brewed another cup. Still the same spinachy smell. I simply did not like it hot, so I tried to cold brew it. What a difference! The flavor was much more mellow and I liked it much better. Too bad I wasted so much trying to figure out the best way to brew for me. I could drink it cold brewed all day!—Lisa
    Exceedingly smooth, calming, and uplifting. Very high-quality tea! This is one of the best green teas that I have had in recent memory. This tea also seems incapable of becoming bitter. Had some left over in the tea pot after 3 hours, and it was still phenomenal. —Amanda
    This is my favorite of the Teaspot Green Tea Club. The first brew is heavenly--I love the floral taste. The second brew still is pleasant, while the third brew does pass out. I look forward to my morning cup of Orchard; unfortunately, it is now all gone!—Ted
    I may have gotten the last of a batch but my impression of the tea I received was that it was not of high quality and old. The leaves were in fragments, there was quite a bit of "dust," and the tea itself brewed up very cloudy with noticeable floating sediment. Taste was likewise muddy and undistinguished. I got no floral, no lush grassiness (so disappointed!), just some umami, some artichoke, some pucker with a sweet edge that lingered on the tongue. What's everybody talking about?? Wahhh! Mine was not good.—Sophie
    The leaves smell very sweet but the flavor was like drinking water. I used 3 grams of tea and 5oz of water at 175deg temp. You might just have to use a little more tea than usual. Will try again though for sure.—Y
    Just received this tea...Fantastic! So delicate, love the floral taste. A new favorite!—Shelly
    This is my absolute favorite green tea. It is so smooth and you can taste the subtle flowery flavor from it. I steep my tea for a long time and it stays smooth throughout. —Gayle
    The cleanest greenest most refreshing green tea I ever had. —Greg
