The stalks and stems are are also the reason why this tea has a sweetness to it. With less leaf, which generally has more astringency, there is then more room for the taste of the sweeter stems and stalks. This green tea is also a good choice to drink in the evening due to less caffeine. However, it is also calming and good for your stomach!
