found at Ito En’s Flagship Store. *discontinued*

Aroma: mild smell, maybe DJ

Taste: wow, this is very very nice. I’m not your usual fan of DJ so this is kind of surprising to me(i liked it!)
A good, well defined flavor. The taste has a couple components, so its not monotonous. It reminds me of the darjeeling base from my favorite earl grey.

This is not overly infused as most bottled teas thus you get almost NO astringency/briskness !! just a clean tea flavor.

Ofcourse this doesn’t taste as strong as a fresh infused loose leaf tea, but they managed to create something very good.
i wouldn’t have guessed this is a bottled/rtd tea!

Overall
: Wonderful ! pricing aside ($1.9/can (245ml)…!!), i would definitely get this. I hope they can package this in larger sizes, and make it cheaper. anywho, it goes on the list.
Too bad they had to put Weil’s name on it. This would have sold without it. ok, maybe not as much. maybe it will help to getting it in more supermarkets? i hope so.
