I wasn’t a fan of this one. It was mellow, marine, vegetal and buttery, but it lacked that fresh grassy taste that I associate with senchas. This product is instant (just add water) so you are getting something easy to make and you don’t have to worry about water temperature, however you lose fresh and complexity vs loose leaf.

This one is much better iced, likely the best use of this tea crystal.

I suppose one has to trade something for convenience :(

You made a believer of me.

Tasted more like a Chinese green than Sencha to me. More spinach than grass, which is fine by me.

Interesting!

I’m not enough of a green-oisseur to catch subtle differences. Unless it’s flavored, it’s either strong green or mild green ;)
(Comes from too many years of burning out tastebuds with Assam and my beloved British builders’ bagged teas.)

Life is hectic. I could go into details but we all have a lot going on in real life. In the rush, making time for proper tea has been near impossible most days of late. I am so glad I have had these crystallized teas to get me through.

I was highly skeptical at first. Yes they are convenient to the extreme. Pour into the cup, add hot water, drink. Don’t have hot water? Pour into an icy water bottle and shake. Nothing is simpler except over sweet bottled tea. The best part is they taste and smell way better than probably necessary. Are they going to replace your loose leaf stash? No, but if you don’t have time, what’s it matter?

This one smells intensely of green vegetation. I immediately picture tiny spring green leaves from China when the aroma hit me. Turns out this ‘sencha’ is grown in China and shaded the last week or so before picking.

The cup is light honey yellow. The taste is vegetive. There is a sharp clean citrus bite. The aftertaste is green, slightly sweet, and lingering.

I’m about to grab another packet and a water bottle before facing RL head on once again.

So glad for a collection of decent bagged options right now :)
