From The Whistling Kettle

A medium-bodied Sencha that tends lightly vegetative with hints of cut grass. Known to be high in polyphenols. Great for weightloss.

Considered a good tea for everyday drinking by the Japanese, Sencha Akaike offers long notes of wheat, clover honey, sweet grass and subtle seaweed. The cup pairs exceptionally well with foods of all sorts, it makes an exceptional palate between courses.

Recent newspaper articles have lauded green tea’s high polyphenol levels, catechins and anti-oxidants and the numerous ways they help the body. Recent scientific evidence appears to show green teas can even help fight certain cancers, strengthen bones and teeth and increase longevity1. Green tea was a beverage favored by Minagawa Yone of Akaike, Fukuoka, Japan. Between January 29, 2007 and August 13, 2007, Minagawa Yone was the world’s oldest living person. Classified as a supercentenarian, Minagawa reached the ripe old age of 114. We can’t make the claim that it was the Sencha alone that kept her going, certainly a combination of diet, good genes and a healthy dose of luck also came into play, but the tea certainly didn’t hurt.

Despite this being a Japansese style Sencha, it is in fact produced in China – however it meets master tasting requirements.

I am amazed at how much my taste in tea has changed in the last few months. I really enjoy green tea so much. I never thought I liked them. Sometimes quality of tea matters.

This was in a $2 sample pack I got from the Whistling Kettle. Of the six samples they sent, 4 were green. All have been great!

This is my first sencha as far as I know. It’s crisp and grassy. Yum.

I got the same samples! Looking forward to trying this one.
