  • Heavenly scent
  • 5 star rating
  • Nadine – VA – April 12, 2021
  • I love the dry scent of this tea so much that I'd almost consider turning it into a sachet to put among my clothes. Almost. The beautiful dragon-green leaves taste wonderful when brewed.
  • A green tea with character

  • Lenny – ME – November 06, 2020
  • One other reviewer said that this tea was reminiscent of the ocean. I agree and find it just a bit fishy. No, that's not a bad thing; it gives the tea real character. I do enjoy it and drink a variety of green teas.
  • Fresh and bright

  • David – OH – May 31, 2020
  • This is my go to tea. It brightens my mood every time I open the canister and smell the freshness. The taste is mild and vegetal. I use more and steep longer for a more concentrated flavor. Expensive but worth it.
  • My favorite tea of all time
  • 5 star rating
  • Rebecca – MI – February 15, 2020
  • I've bought many sencha teas and have enjoyed them all. Hands down, this is my favorite. The smell when I lift the steeping basket out of the pot delights me every time I brew this tea. If I had to drink one tea the rest of my life, this would be it.
  • Refreshing and delicious

  • Catherine – MA – December 05, 2019
  • This sencha is exactly what I was looking for. The deep green leaves are significantly more fragmented than shown in the photo, but this didn't seem to degrade the flavor. It is smooth and rich, without excess bitterness or any off-balance notes. Importantly, it responds well to up to four rounds of steeping, unusual for a green tea.
  • First time green tea--Great!
  • 5 star rating
  • Kevin – WI – November 22, 2019
  • Just had my first cup of this tea and I think it might be my favorite tea of all time! I have been a black tea drinker for years and I wanted to try a green tea. Oh what I have been missing! The velvety mouthfeel and subtle flavor...I look forward to exploring the world of green teas.
  • Good mild taste

  • Favorite green tea
  • 5 star rating
  • John – IA – July 09, 2019
  • I've tried a wide variety of green teas and this one is my favorite. I enjoy it even more than the more expensive ones
  • Bright

  • Susan – VA – June 20, 2019
  • Bright and grassy, not too vegetal. Brings to mind the ocean, with some slight savory notes.
