I have been drinking Organic green tea for 14 years, and have tasted many different varieties from many different suppliers. I have noticed a decline in quality in Chinese green teas, from some of the major suppliers of affordable bulk teas. This, tea, however, is very good. There are no rough edges and it appears to be a high quality tea, first in its appearance, then looking at the leaves after they've been soaked out, and finally in the taste and effect of the tea. Just make sure that you follow the brewing directions and use water that is not too hot.
