From two leaves and a bud

East meets West in this Japanese green tea blend which has all the taste of a full leaf green tea. (Good green tea is green, not brown!) We add the flavor of famous Italian red oranges, which adds a tanginess to this Japanese favorite. Sencha is the most consumed tea in Japan. It is long leafed tea, finished in the sun. (Other Japanese teas are covered at the end of the growing season.) Our Orange Sencha includes sunflowers, orange peel and just a hint of Italian red orange flavor to add just a hint of sweet & spicy to this classic green tea.

I will start off by saying that this is a very enjoyable bagged green. I know I enjoy it, but I’m not giving it a rating right now (read below).

I’m in Port St. Lucie for today and tomorrow with my boyfriend, who is here for a business trip. I’m just hanging out with him and decided to brew up a cup of this because I don’t have access to my loose tea stash (and I have a ton of bagged tea to go through). I took a sip of this and it was AWFUL. I couldn’t exactly put my finger on it.

And then I figured it out – the water quality here is not that great. Blehhhhh. Oh well, I’m only here for a couple days, but it’s amazing how much poor water quality can affect a tea. Maybe I’ll go pull out some bottled water, although it is a pain to make it without all my comforts from home.

Regarding water quality: Once I was on tour & played in Garden City, KS. That town is built in the middle of the beef packing industry, so the air is full of the dust of bone meal, the water is so full of collagen that everyone has great hair, nails, & bone density. I brewed a cup of tea, & it was slick & thick, kind of like warm jello. It was disgusting! Luckily, I wasn’t there long…

yep bad water can make very bad tea. I was at a restaurant and they got the tea water from the same place as the coffee water so the tea had coffee aftertaste which might not matter to coffee/ex-coffee drinkers but to a tea only person it was disgusting :D

@Terri – Ick, that doesn’t sound like a fun way to enjoy tea.

@Helena – Ugh, I can only imagine how gross that was. Amazing what a difference good water can make.

This is very nice. The Sencha is very light and the orange flavoring is in balance with that – so I can taste the fresh sencha as well as the refreshing orange.

This one is awesome iced!

A pleasant balanced cup. I would like it more if the Sencha was not so light bodied.

It’s a staple in my cupboard; it was better years ago when saffron was used.

Light and citrusy, with slight woodsy notes. Had this tea in a coffeehouse, which to me is always a mixed bag because they always give you the same temperature of water — HOT. I did a short steep since I wasn’t sure just how hot it was, but I’m pleased with the cup.

Too light for my taste. I do get a very faint presence of orange & green tea, but it tastes very watered down even steeping for 6 minutes at 185F. Pairs nicely with shortbread cookies.

On the nose, there is a distinct tangy orange aroma, notably from the Italian red orange. As I move on to drink the tea, I would like to note the smooth, light body and clean finish. I compare the finish to that of a very light orange sorbet, meant to cleanse the mouth for the next course. The flavor is a light green tea that is mellowed out and I would say complimented with the safflower petals and orange. The triad of ingredients allows this tea to be a fine experience from start to finish.
