From Rishi Tea

Super Green recently won 1st Place at the 2010 World Tea Championship for “Blended Green Tea” and is our greenest tea ever, combining chumushi (mid-steamed) sencha from Kagoshima and a ceremonial grade matcha from the Kyoto Prefecture of Japan. This new blend has a vivid green infusion with a smooth and sweet umami flavor and is sure to please any green tea lover with its innovative profile and fresh character.

Super Green is an effective and totally natural energy drink that will invigorate and refresh with the powers of matcha and premium sencha. We selected a varietal of sencha known as “Sae Midori,” which is one of the most umami green tea cultivars in the world and has 3% more amino acids and L-theanine than all other tea bush types in Japan. It is perfectly balanced with vivid green matcha, which is also high in amino acids and prized for its stimulating mental clarity and alpha brain waves effect.

Super Green is best prepared with a kyusu teapot using water no hotter than 170°F. This tea can also be prepared as fukamushi cha (deep steamed tea), yielding 2-3 flavorful infusions. We also suggest 8-12 hours cold brew for a most refreshing green iced tea.

Water: 170°F / Leaves: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces / Infusion Time: 1.5 minutes / Ingredients: Japanese sencha green tea and matcha green tea. / Origin: Japan.

This is a seriously GREEN green tea. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such green liquor in a tea that wasn’t pure matcha. What impressed me the most was how flavorful it was, without being bitter, even though I oversteeped it slightly. It’s kind of like sencha on steroids — the addition of matcha amps it up and increases the umami factor. The flavor profile is vegetal yet sweet; it’s not what I would call grassy or spinach-y. I enjoyed it and will probably purchase more.

After hearing about this tea , I had to try it. I mean… not only are the ingredients in this tea independently fantastic but, it’s a World Tea Champion so let me have it!

The verdict: Meh.

This tea has the creamy mouthfeel of Matcha, and the slight astringency of Sencha, which in themselves sound quite nice, but… well… as I already mentioned, each of those teas on their own are fantastic.
I feel that the Matcha conceals the lovely nuances of Sae Midori Sencha. The precise wonder of Sae Midori is that it is so complex! The Matcha overpowers it.
And the creaminess of the Matcha is there, and in its own right it’s lovely… but… it’s not whisked. My impression throughout my entire first cup was, “Aggghh! I really want to whisk the heck out of this right now!!” And this surprised me because I don’t feel that way at all when I have Genmai Matcha / Ryokucha.

So my conclusion is this: This is a good tea. It’s unique, and it gets you jacked. But… in my opinion… the Matcha is best whisked up as a bowl of Matcha, and the Sae Midori Sencha is best savoured and appreciated on it’s own.

Aw, bummer. Reading the description, this does sound delectable. And I’ll have you know that I am on the verge of buying a quarter pound of Ancient Yellow Buds and I am completely blaming you for my addiction to it.

Oh Cha!

Woooo! I take full credit. :)
Yellow teas are where it’s at.

This is a great tea. It tastes like a standard sencha with a bit of added depth, and smells lovely. The added matcha powder makes this one a little bit messy. And yes, it’s green. Very, very green.

Flavors: Umami

It is 7:00 pm and I was telling myself that it’s time for a cup of tea. Matcha seemed like the best idea and I do like this one. The manufacturer, Rishi, says that it should be brewed using 1 tbsp. per 8 ounces of tea but I like my tea to be strong, so I added a bit more than that. However, I may have overdone it because this time the tea tastes a tiny bit bitter and the last time I had it there was no bitterness at all.
I added a little stevia (being diabetic I don’t use sugar) and this made it better. There was a time when I would never have sweetened green tea, but I have changed. A lot of the old rules have gone out the window and I am a freer, happier person as a result.
Back to the Matcha Super Green. I can understand why they call it that because it IS very, very green and there is a super quality to it.
The bitterness was my fault and I love this tea.

Have you tried sweet matcha from red leaf tea? They sell great matcha!

I don’t own the buisness. But if you check them out at I’m absolutely sure you will find something you love! Feel free to search my tasting notes of their teas. I love their starter matcha and almond matcha. I just yesterday ordered 8ounces of their sweet matcha, a sample of their cheese cake matcha, a sample of their delux matcha and a sample of their caramel (which I will give another chance) :) I’ll be looking forward to your reviews and hopefully, you, mine :)

I just placed an order with Red Leaf Tea. Their oolong sampler package (I love oolong) and the starter matcha. Thanks for the suggestion. Looking forward to them!


i cannot promise you will like/love them, but its always a good thing to try things. but the starter matcha is good made into matvha smoothies and matcha pancakes. and to me is good in hot water too

I am fairly new to tea drinking, but I love this one so much! It has a beautiful rich green colour, a gorgeous earthy fresh scent, and the taste is awesome. It almost has a sweet, grassy taste to it. I picked this up because it was on sale and will definitely repurchase.

Very pleased with this tea. It comes with an oversized wrapper that makes for a good place to set the bag between steeps. Within you’ll find a reasonable roomy satchet full of choppy bits of flavorful sencha along with a modest sprinkling of matcha.

I like it. It’s not the most complex sencha I’ve had, but it has a pleasant vegetable taste that responds very well to a little bit of sweetener, making this an extremely comfortable tea for me. On the first steep you may find this getting a bit bitter and astringent towards the bottom at the matcha sits there doing its thing long after the bag is removed, and while I’d rather say the flavor got deeper, bitter and astringent is a bit more on target.

All in all, this is an excellent bagged tea that isn’t at all overpriced. Oh, and regarding the super green, it is pretty darn attractive.

I love Japanese green tea so much. When I saw this in the store earlier today, I immediately went on this site, and went through with the purchase after reading the reviews. I’ve had a lot of sencha and gyokuro, but, believe it or not, this is my first matcha experience. The sencha grassiness is there, but it seems as if the matcha may smooth the tea out a bit, as it doesn’t have the usual sencha bite. It’s not sweet like a gyokuro, just kind of a smoother, thicker sencha. I like it a lot. I think I’m going to go back and buy more tomorrow…I can see myself drinking this one often when I’m looking for the convenience of a bag…or sachet.

I know that saying this tea tastes very green is silly, but it does. Nice flavor without bitterness.
