Jin Xuan is sooo good! Known as Golden Daylily. I call this Golden Delightful. This is a dessert tea for me that I love to brew! Its creamy and elegant. You can appreciate the delicacy of this tea and appreciate the slow growing climate it grows in. The tea also has milky flavor like cold milk that is thin and light. I also can detect a light floweryness to this tea. I brew this with a gaiwan, typically use one teaspoon, if I use 1.5 teaspoons I can get 12 infusions.
Flavors: Floral, Milk

This is an everyday type of Sencha. Being in this category it is a top performer! This is Organic which is rare for Sencha, that does not always mean anything, however the growing area is ideal. Away from Radiation and large cities in Japan. I really enjoy this tea. It has the classic steamed vegetal taste that is creamy. The taste is not bitter but balanced. I buy 2 ounces from Vitacost for about $7. I feel the value and quality is excellent for Sencha tea.
Flavors: Creamy, Vegetal
Very good Matcha tea. This is a 2nd harvest that deserves great credit. Bright Green color, has a slight sweetness but not really bitter. Most 2nd Harvests have more antioxidants than Ceremonial grade but lack as much L-theanine and sweetness. However, most ceremonial grade matcha that I have tried are not much different than this tea. Also happens to be a great bargain. About $30 on Amazon for 2.8 ounces of matcha.
This Matcha Tea is not bad but not worth the price. Its tends to clump in my matcha bowl and takes twice as long as domatcha one. This one is not bad to drink it just lacks a sweetness. I am happy Teavana has sourced an Organic Version from Central Japan. Perhaps they bought a bad batch while buying in Japan?
