Yes I know that there is also an “organic” Japanese green tea powder from ShiZen, but they are different products.
I really like these green tea powder packets from Shi Zen. It makes tea on the go so easy. I don’t really care much for RTD teas … I mean, there are some that are alright, but, they are generally too sweet for my liking. These are just right. Just the right amount of natural sweetness, and I like that I’m tasting green tea and not the sugar, syrup and flavoring that is in most of the “to go” kind of tea drinks.
Tasty, sweet, vegetative … and after a good, vigorous shake, the tea powder stays incorporated in the water. No gritty sediment.

Even though this is not a matcha, I prepared it the same way I would a matcha, in my chawan, whisking it with my chasen. I was surprised at how much froth the powdered sencha produced! It resembled a high-quality matcha! Impressive!
Sweet, vegetative (this side of grassy) and buttery, with creamy notes, there is some bitterness to this, but I like it. It offers a nice contrast to the sweet notes and gives the overall bowl a sort of savory quality.
A very invigorating tea! Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/07/22/organic-green-tea-powder-from-shi-zen/
