What is this tea?

by bingybongy2003 » Jul 17th 17 3:12 pm

Hi guys,
My dad bought me some green teas from the supermarket a few months ago when he went to Japan. There's just one I dont know what it is. All I know is that the make is Itoen. If anyone can tell me what it is it would be much aprreciated.

Found more sites but those were japanese and I suppose you've seen them. >> http://www.itoen.co.jp/products/detail.php?id=2027

Thanks very much for the reply Xeractha! I guess the tea is slightly better than I thought.
