ShiZen Tea

Recent Tasting Notes



I’ve loved the different teas that I’ve tried from ShiZen. Prepared “traditionally” (as I would prepare Matcha), the surface of the tea was very fluffy and frothy.

This is also great served cold (measuring out a couple of scoops into a water bottle and shaking vigorously) – it’s a delicious alternative to the sugary RTD teas … LOVED it like this.

Creamy and sweet, notes of savory bitterness, and a delicious nutty background. Really good.

Different? Definitely! But different is good.

This Matcha froths up really nicely, it has a strong vegetative taste. What’s interesting about this Matcha is that it is actually blended with the powder of the cherry blossom leaf, so you get some authentic flavors there. This isn’t flavored via crystals or flavoring.

I really enjoyed it.

I really like these green tea powder packets from ShiZen … it’s great for on the go. When we go for a road trip or something, I always put a few of these in my purse so that I can buy a bottle of water and have some green tea that doesn’t taste like the over-sweetened RTD teas that they sell at the convenience stores. With these, you just tear open the little pixie packet and pour the powder into the bottle and give it a really good shake, and wa-lah! Tea that tastes like tea not sugar.

Refreshing and invigorating.
