From Xanadu Fine Teas

Mild Green Tea. It is rare to find the pale-green cup of a grand sencha tea outside Japan, as little is produced and most is reserved for local consumption. Yet Xanadu has discovered a sencha producing garden near the slopes of Mt. Fuji. Basket fired, the leaves of this Sencha fan out like the long legs of a spider for an intriguingly beautiful tea.

Excellent for mid-grade, low-price sencha. Great value for an everyday drinker (I think I paid ~$8 for 4 oz). Nice and rich vegetal flavor. Notes of spinach, sea weed, and freshly-cut grass. Good leaf size, but still a fair mount of dust which contributes to a match-like cloudy brew in the first couple of infusions.

I think it makes a fantastic cold-brewed iced tea as well. Really brings out the subtler, sweeter flavors and virtually no bitterness that way, only downside is that you don’t get as many infusions this way before it becomes it really watery. I’ve even blended with a few lighter greens for giving them more “edge” when making iced tea.

Everyone I’ve offered this too has commented about how much they loved it. Would buy again.
