Organic Sencha is the real deal. We were happy to find a nice-tasting green tea that was truly organic and truly a Sencha. We are big fans of Matsuda and his Sencha, and when we learned that this tea was from Watsuka, we were very excited. Organic teas are very important to some; however, sometimes it is hard to find these teas in Japan. The tea makers often feel that they cannot make good tea without the addition of nitrogen. This element is found in every amino acid, even those in your body. Amino acids give Sencha their body, or umami, and they also add sweetness to the brew. However, this teamaker gets by with natural fertilizers. Yes, the tea is a bit weaker than other Senchas, but it is still very nice.


Organic green tea.

 Details: A certified organic sencha from Japan, with a light but enjoyable cup.
 Dry Leaves: The leaves are medium green and shorter in length than other Senchas. This tea comes from the same valley as Matsuda's Sencha, so the microclimate (or terroir) and the traditions make it possible to make good Sencha.
 Liquor: The liquor is a light, clear green because the tea is regular-steamed (in contrast to deep-steamed).
 Aroma: This tea has an aroma of lightly steamed vegetables like spinach. Since it is organic, the aromas will be lighter. In comparison to conventional tea, there are fewer amino acids.
 Flavors: Organic Sencha has agreeable vegetal flavors, but the volume is turned down. It comes from a great area, so the tea does have some amino acids and antioxidants to make an agreeable tea, just less of them.
 Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
 Body: Light-bodied
 Brewing Time: 2 minutes
 Brewing Temp: 175¬ļ
