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.
