From Octavia Tea

Crafted for the connoisseur yet easy to appreciate, Zen Super Green is our most richly flavored, antioxidant-laden green tea. This tea’s vivid, glowing, jade-green infusion is created by generously coating the Sencha leaf with powdered Matcha, the legendary stone-ground tea used in the Japanese Tea Ceremony.

The brew opens with a velvety, umami flavor and crescendos with a vegetal finish. This potent blend contains a high concentration of the amino acid theanine, which is known for its ability to calm the mind, promote mental clarity and act as a natural anti-depressant.

Best prepared using water no hotter than 170°F and steeped for only 1½ -2 minutes.

Bright green matcha powder covering flat, dark green leaves. The leaves are broken, badly. It almost looks as if I opened a tea bag and dumped the contents. Dry is smells very sweet and grassy, same with the wet leaves and infusion. The leaves, even badly broken, did open fully on the first steep. The liquior was a very bright and vibrant green. Taste was very sweet from the matcha, grassy from the sencha and had an astringent/bitter aftertaste on the tip of my tongue. I know that sounds weird, but that’s what I was getting and I’m assuming that the bitterness was from the leaves being so broken. Even though it was bitter the smoothness of the matcha balanced it out and made it pleasant. The second steep though had lost most of the smooth sweetness, I guess since the matcha went out into the first infusion. Unfortunately because there was no more sweetness the bitterness was much stronger almost making it undrinkable. I know I didn’t oversteep it, temp was 160-165 and the first brew was 10-15 seconds, the second was 15-20 seconds. Maybe i should’ve added more matcha from my stash, but I wanted to try it without doing anything to it first. Maybe I’ll buy my own sencha and add matcha too it since the first steep was really good.

I wasn’t expecting much with the campy name, but this is competing with Gyokuro Yamashiro for the best green tea I’ve had. It’s buttery and even almost kind of sweet. I’ve never had a matcha/full leaf mix before. Too bad I only had a sample package of this! I’ve only got enough left for maybe one small cup. It’s expensive but I may have to get a tin of this…
