drank Shaded Leaf by Mellow Monk
2 tasting notes

Excellent tea. It has an intense green color that I have not seen in other teas of its kind. The smell is quite refreshing as well. It may be expensive, but well worth its price. The flavor is subtle and very appealing. It induces a feeling of relaxation in me, just like the other mellow monk tea I’ve tasted, Monk’s Choice.

It is my impression that to enjoy teas such as this one, you need to have a good brewing method, and if you truly want to enjoy it, avoid drinking it while doing something else (such as using your computer or watching TV), otherwise you may not experience the full flavor of the tea. It is a tea that demands attention, like classical music. Otherwise, you would be wasting money on it, and you would be better off with a more affordable option picked up from a market stall.

If you can afford 15 minute tea breaks on your day to day life, I highly recommend this tea.
