I agree with Ricky, I think there’s matcha in it… although if there is, it bothers me that it isn’t listed on the package. I’m all about the product name living up to the actual product (especially in taste). Ok… so the predicament is how much water to use. The catalog says that they’re extra big to make a couple cups (12-16oz) but a serving of sencha is 4oz which means it’d make 3-4 cups. Well, I’ll meet them in the middle and make a 12oz cup.
Once it steeps there is a small amount of residue on the water line, not nearly as much is normally present in matcha dusted tea so that makes me think that the leaves are just so small some of them powdered. The liquor is extremely light green with a tint of yellow- a slightly lighter, more translucent version of the 2nd to last smiley from the right.
The taste definitely matches the liqour. While there is a very faint taste of what I think might be matcha (darn congestion) most of it is just green tea. This definitely can make 2 cups, but the volume varies based on the type of tea in the bag. I’d use 8-12oz of water instead of the recommended 12-16.
