Organic Japanese Sencha was today’s DT’s offering. I think I’m getting burned out on green. This one was okay, but I don’t think I’m that big a fan of Sencha. The smell of spinach was strong when I poured, and the resulting cup was very vegetal and grassy with a bit of astringency. As far as straight up greens go, I like the Emperor’s Clouds and Mist from Teavana better than the Japanese Sencha. There are processing differences, right? I don’t know. I had high hopes for this one, hoping to find a slightly cheaper straight up green that I liked as much as EC&M, but alas, this one was not to be.
