From Upton Tea Imports

A superior grade of Sencha, with a brighter flavor and smoother aftertaste. Also known as our “Sencha Yamato”. Highly recommended.

I’m admittedly a fan of bold Japanese green teas. I like that uncompromising grassy taste that drives most others away. This Sencha in particular is able to announce it’s vegetal presence on the palate, linger long enough to let one ponder its’ nuance, and then depart with a clean aftertaste. I enjoy this tea at the workplace or for introspection.

Of course, if you don’t – like – your tea grassy and raw, then by all means stay away. Unarguably an acquired taste.

I am a big fan of all green teas, including Japanese green teas, which I am always told taste like grass and are not very good. While there certainly is a very distinct spinachy, grassy taste to most japanese greens, I think the flavor is so much more complex than others give credit. This tea is very good and tasty.
