Our Review
The 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. When we learned that this tea was the from the same valley: Watsuka, we were very excited. Organic teas are very important to some, however, sometimes it is hard to find these teas made in Japan. The tea makers often feel that they can not make good tea without the addition of Nitrogen. This element is found in every amino acid (even those in your body) and amino acids give Sencha there body or umami, also they add sweetness to the brew. However this teamaker gets by with natural fertilizers. Yes, the tea is a bit weaker than other Senchas, but is still very nice.

Organic Sencha

In the past, we have avoided "Organic Sencha". Our feeling was maybe it was organic, and maybe it was a Japanese Sencha, but the tea did not taste good. However a few years ago, Mike met the supplier at a show and he was quite impressed by this Sencha. So this one is certified organic and it is certainly from Japan, and most importantly, it tastes like a good Sencha.

Good everyday tea Review by Neia
Average Review:
Although this Sencha does not give much umami flavor, I appreciate that it is offered in an organic form. It is also very affordable compared to other Senchas. I use it with a cold-brew method, which seems to bring out the umami flavor more than a hot-brew method. (Posted on 8/28/13)

Nice sencha Review by Spike Sagal
Average Review:
Tastes good. A little light on flavor and body, and brews golden instead of green. (Posted on 8/3/13)
