Although this tea has now been ageing for 3 years, it still gives a bright green liquor. It’s flavor and aroma have become matured and have rounded and mellowed to the point where a velvety smooth, almost milky, sweet taste has been obtained. Regardless, it has also maintained its lightly menthol characteristics.
