Package: Product of China. no “organic” wording on this one… nice 🙂 the label is really crooked, rotated on a corner… (if its the chinese packing plant, they should slap them around with a large trout.)

Liquor: golden-yellow meaning i hope tea is oxidated & most likely not much preservatives.

Smell: faint, imho a bit of medicinal but lets see taste.

Taste: some mild astringency-tannin back of throat/tongue, then swishing around feel “roasted-toasted fried” green tea taste – ok, tastes like tea. no medicinal flavors, no citric acid-lemon. But… after tasting the 4 teas from them i have to say there is sort of a funky flavor in there, in all them bottles… its not the lemon taste, its a weird faint medicinal maybe kind of funk…

Faint aftertaste, but doesn’t feel completely watery, some remnants on tongue and back of throat but again, faint. i think it kind of feels fatty-coating on the tongue in the aftertaste(might be wrong).

Overall: taste is mild-medium, ok, not bad, i wouldnt go out of my way to buy it again, and if ito en was there i’d pick that first. compared to itoen’s green tea, adagio is more mild, subdued, less astringent-tanninic, less defined, and it also has a funk-o-flavor on my tongue.
