Best Affordable Sencha?

I’m pretty new to the world of tea, but I’ve already found Japanese Senchas to be my absolute favorite. So far, my favorite that I have tried is from Harney and Sons. I’m still in high school, so needless to say I have a very tight tea budget. I was just wondering what sencha you guys consider to be the best balance between quality and price. Just so you know, I am a huge fan of the vegetal aspect of sencha. So what is the best bang for my buck? Thanks so much.

I’d go with Organic Sencha from Den’s or their basic Fukamushi:

You can definitely search the forums there… many people have asked the same question.

I recently did a review of a cheap whole leaf (surprising quality actually) sencha from Uncle Lee. I hated it, but I also hate the vegetal aspect of teas… so naturally I didn’t like it, but if that’s what you like then you may want to give this inexpensive tea a try.

I love the Sencha from Culinary Teas. They may use a different supplier, but OMG I’m in heaven with their Long Island Strawberry Sencha. Knocks your socks off – sandals too. :) It’s delicious!

Thanks guys, I’ll check those out. I’ve heard good things about Den’s. And I’m really glad to hear you say that the sencha from Culinary Teas is good, I was considering that – I was just skeptical because for a sencha, it’s dirt cheap.
