“sencha character in a matcha powder. Walker Tea Review #286. Score=89” Read full tasting note
Matcha-Style Powdered Green Tea is made from the same yabukita tea plant varietal as our other fine greens. The finished tea is finely milled to produce a smooth, silky powder that dissolves easily in hot or cold water.
The infusion is incredibly tasty — rich and earthy but less bitter than conventional matcha, and slightly sweet.
To brew hot, use the provided measuring spoon to add a small spoonful to a cup or mug filled with hot water. Mix briskly and enjoy. To brew cold, add one or two small spoonful to a bottle or other sealable container, seal, then shake briskly.
(Some settling may occur in cold-brewed tea. When that happens, simply shake the tea again.)
You can even incorporate green tea into your culinary life—simply sprinkle a spoonful onto any dish right before eating, or add it during the cooking process, for a delightful, tasty touch of green tea goodness.
Each resealable packet contains 95 grams of powdered tea, enough to make literally gallons and gallons of brewed tea.

Powdered sencha is pretty much considered “ghetto” matcha, since real matcha uses tencha leaves that are given extra shading. This one breaks the formula a little bit for being a powdered tamaryokucha (or curly green tea); probably the only type of sencha I’ll ever drink again.
The flavor is slightly grassy, but also possesses a melon-like note similar to a white tea, and ends on a sweet (if vegetal) finish. It may not be top-o’-the-line matcha, but it’s a high grade substitute. After my review sample, I actually had to buy a batch. I think it’ll last me four months or so.
