While I think my labeling is wrong on my sample – ingredients say it has puffed corn, brown rice, and matcha with sencha (sounds like genmaicha to me) the tea is clearly what the name says on the label which is this one.
This is an excellent sencha with a VERY fresh taste like a fresh mowed lawn.
Bright and cherry on a foggy dreary day.
Sencha Superior Uji 100g pouch
Sencha is the most commonly enjoyed variety of Japanese green tea. Sencha contains more of the beneficial nutrient Catechin than other green teas, because it is grown in full sunlight, thus it becomes yellow-green in color. Sencha tastes gently astringent and smells wonderfully fresh. Sencha is harvested three or four times a year. But with each harvest, the tea becomes slightly lower in quality. This is why the first flush, or Ichiban Cha, is the best. All of our Sencha products are made exclusively from Ichiban Cha. You will certainly be delighted with the fine and generously harmonized flavor of our Sencha.
