"I love sencha, but feel shy for now about buying tea from Japan until to Fukushima situation clarifies. Thus feel very grateful for this offering. But this is a very rustic sencha, with lots of stems and a very grassy flavor. Fine for now, but not a substitute for the "real thing."" David Lutz

"Tea is OK, but doesn't begin to compare to the out-of-stock TJ16K, Sencha Special Grade Yamato."
