For a long time I wasn’t a fan of sencha. Now I realize that my first few attempts were with relatively low quality tea. Den’s has always seemed to be THE source for green tea so I ordered their green tea sampler and this tea was included. The leaves were a dark emerald color and smelled fresh but not quite the freshly mowed lawn smell I was expecting. I brewed this tea in a cast iron tea pot called a testubin with 170 degree water for two and a half minutes. This was longer than Den’s directions but my testubin is fairly large and I was worried about ending up with a weak brew.

The brewed tea had a slight roasted aroma but also retained the fresh smell of the dry leaves. This tea was naturally sweet and had a taste that lingered long after taking a sip. It was not bitter in the least. I compared a cooled cup and a still hot cup and they were both equally delicious. I think I would be hard pressed to find a green tea that was a refreshing as this selection. It was perfect for a warm northeastern day like today.

It’s my lucky day! I got a sample of this with my Den’s order. It is wonderful! It has a very rich flavor, and a beautiful deep green color when brewed.

This tea has a very unique flavor- kind of toasty & sweet. Definitely unlike any other tea I’ve tried. I love it- drink it almost daily.

let it brew a little longer than supposed to.. about 4 1/5 – 5 min.. although a nice mild tea, you actually will pick up on the nice floral notes. little touch of honey would have been better, but the raw sugar I used was quite nice as a second choice

Very good! I got this for free with the Den’s Green Tea starter kit. I was hesitant about cool brewing, but it was the perfect drink for the afternoon on the go. It was good the second infusion, too.
