About Green Sanctuary: Vert

Green Sanctuary Vert is a Taiwanese green tea redolent of wet grass after a rainstorm.

It carries a cashew nut top note, followed by a subtle hijiki taste. It is delicate and soft on the palate. The lingering sweet aftertaste reminds us of autumn air after a rain shower.
