I got this tea from Culinary Teas, but it’s the same tea. It’s so refreshing. Love the floral sweetness it has. Very nice tea blend base. Love this iced, wonderful for a perk in the morning. It has a nice creaminess to it. I love Nilgiri iced, and with the flavoring, it’s perfection.

I bought this on a whim at my local Japanese store. I was needing some caffeine for my ride home. It says it’s the #1 Japanese green tea. I agree with what another person said, it tastes like a Chinese green tea. I was surprised to see it’s a product of Thailand. It is refreshing, but I don’t think I would buy again.

6 years ago, I would of thought this tea was amazing. Now? It’s a good tea when I’m watching my tea budget, which is now. I make an iced quart of tea for work off and on. The jasmine flavor is at a strength I like, not too overpowering where I can’t taste the tea itself. The tea itself is good, mild. Once I go through this tin, I probably won’t buy more unless I need to tighten my tea budget. For the price, you can’t find a better tea. The Asian grocer in my town seems to have a good turn around on this tea.

I prefer this brewed with the Standard method, not so think on the tongue. GREAT WITH SUSHI!

Very interesting tasting sencha. Thick tasting on the tongue. Just brimming with something…like how some meats are gamey. There’s like no touch of bitter, which makes it weird to me. I enjoy it though. Very calming. Has a seaweed taste to it, would go great with nori wrapped sushi I bet. Mmmm, I just thawed some sashimi salmon and scallops for my lunch tomorrow. This should rock with it!

Compared to the spring and summer, I didn’t like this like this tea as much. Lots of twigs, so I was interested in the flavor. I felt it was more bitter than the other samples I’ve had so far. Grassy. It was just simple.

My dad got this for me. It just wasn’t for me. It has a mild strength of guava. It has a cold medicine feel to it, does ginseng have that effect? I have had ginseng tea, but don’t remember that feeling. It reminds me how Coldeeze feels in your mouth, but not as extreme. It’s something that made me not like the tea. The tea itself was just mediocre. I am donating the rest to a friend who has a cold, I hope she enjoys it. I really was looking forward to the guava flavor. First guava flavored tea.

I am really loving this one. When I think of a sencha, this is what I want. It’s medium-strong flavor, great balance of savory, sweet, and astringency. Perfect iced and hot. Rebrews quite nicely. I could easily buy more. Very tasty, this is going to ruin other sencha experiences for me, since they all will have to live up to this. I am really loving this, and all I had was a tablespoon sample. This so far is my favorite tea from the sampler, but I have a few to go through. So fresh, it agrees with me.

I had to bump the rating on this up. I spent a lazy day just rebrewing this over and over. I gave up after 7 since it was bedtime. It was delish each time. I had time to enjoy the slight changes. Smooth, silky, and a light caramelized milk flavor.

It’s very pricey, but I think I could drink this all over again. One for enjoyment.

This tea is balanced well. The fruit and green tea come out in the right strength. Love the rich raspberry flavor. I might have to buy some raspberry jam to mix with the tea. Wonderful iced.

I love cooking, sleeping, reading, reggae music, and tea. I also enjoying reading about tea, the culture and ceremonies, and the diverse types.

I think most the teas I drink are 80% iced, but on some days, it’s opposite that, especially days off! I can’t believe it took me this long to try different teas. Better now than never!

Reading the reviews help guide me to the right tea. I have been turned on to so many delightful brews.

I am ALWAYS up for swapping. Just PM me.
