From Aiya

Premium Sencha is one of the most prized Sencha teas available in the Japanese tea market. Enjoy the depth of authentic Japanese green tea flavor. The emerald green tea leaves are tightly rolled into long strips to retain their freshness and taste.


Bring the water to a boil and allow it to cool to 80°C/176°F. Steep 1 heaping teaspoon (3g) of Premium Sencha for 1.5 minutes in 1 cup (240ml/8 oz) of hot water. With this tea, one can pour more hot water over the tea leaves and enjoy another cup.

This has been my go-to Green tea the last month or so! It’s so incredibly clean that I can’t help but go back to it time and time again! It has natural citrus notes as well as a sweet touch of nut. This is SOLID!

Full review will be on tomorrow, May 22nd at 6pm Central but here are the snippets:

The best way that I can describe Premium Sencha from Aiya is fresh delicious perfection. I have sat here with this cup so immersed in it, just allowing myself to become a part of it, and it is just the freshest sensational cup of tea ever. There is a nutty sweetness with just a slight astringency that gives it almost a citrus like zest. The left over flavor on the palate is lingering, nutty, and a little tart. Yes, you will find a grassy flavor in the tea, but it is not grassy like other green teas I have experienced, this tea is more like a seaweed with a slight saltiness, a vegetal flavor that is really special. The aroma is equally pleasing. I can only describe the aroma as something you would experience in a prairie meadow on a breezy, warm, summer’s day.

When I received my tin from Aiya I was really surprised to find that under the lid was a secondary sealed pull back lid. I was so excited and impressed I made my daughter and husband come look. Upon pulling off the sealed lid by the ring (like an older style soda can) and hearing the freshness seal open, with an airy sound, the aroma of the dry leaf was mesmerizing! The lead is dark green and almost shimmery silver looking. No wonder this is the freshest tasting sencha I have ever experienced!

If you have not tried a tea from Aiya please do yourself a favor and get yourself some right away! You won’t be disappointed in their teas.


so you definitively need to buy a Mariage Frère tin, they add a secondary sealed lid as well :)
It sounds like a delightful tea !

This one is a very special green tea from TeaBoxB! The leaves are the darkest green I’ve seen and very wiry, tightly twisted. Water cooled, two minute steep and this is the sort of green tea I’m talking about it. It’s creamy creamy with something vegetal I can’t place (the specific vegetable I can’t tell… but so so good) and hints of something fruity (maybe peach)? The flavor is so lingering… probably the best green tea I’ve had!

I love Aiya’s products because they always live up to the quality that I expect from this company … always top-notch.

This was such a fresh … delightful Sencha! I could smell the freshness when I opened the tin. Sweet, luscious, slight kelp-y note, nice vegetative taste.

Sipdown! This is a wonderful sencha. It’s smooth with almost no bitterness and lots of sweet vegetal flavors. I shared this with a friend who was so impressed she said it was the best green tea she’d ever had, and I think I may surprise her with some for her birthday. It definitely seems fitting as a gift!

Sencha always reminds me of grass clippings, if grass were as green as grass could get. I love it – this one is very good. It is super fresh, which makes it ideal for late spring/early summer drinking. It is vegetal with a bit of citrus that helps to keep things light.
