I'm not a fan of the "grassy" flavored green teas, and this one has that fresh scent without reminding me of newly mown grass. The flavor is medium bodied, when I steep for 3-4 minutes, not overpowering or bitter, A nice green tea for a mostly black and oolong drinkerRead Full Review

Not being experienced specifically with Sencha varieties of green tea, I didn't know what to expect when grabbing a box of this to bring home from Austria. [This tea is sold in SPAR supermarkets, fairly ubiquitous over a lot of Europe and available online.] Read Full Review

I usually think of tea as being more about the aroma than the flavor, but this tea was intensely flavorful, and I thought its flavor was what made it most interesting and enjoyable.Read Full Review
This tea was very similar overall to the Organic Sencha also sold by Harney & Sons. The main difference I noticed initially was that t...

This was one of the best senchas I've had from a tea company that is not a Japanese company.Read Full Review
It smells amazing! The dry leaf is incredibly aromatic, and the aroma is rich, sweet, and very interesting. It has sweet vegetal notes which quickly develop into a warm, mellow, nutty, and slightly toasty aroma, hinting at ...

An exceptional sencha from a tea bag; without a doubt the best sencha I've ever tried from a tea bag, and better than a lot of examples of loose-leaf tea.Read Full Review
The dry tea bag has a very fresh and pleasing aroma, like loose-leaf sencha of very good quality, suggesting sweetness.
Brews a very light-colored cup with a b...

This was the first green tea I ever tried, and I liked it quite a bit.Read Full Review
It tastes like spinach, but in a fresh, pleasant sort of way. Also some grassy and fishy tastes. It's rich and savory. Pretty sweet. Pretty astringent. Very slightly bitter. I found it very relaxing.
I've only ever tried Adagio's green teas so...

Very pleased with this tea. It comes with an oversized wrapper that makes for a good place to set the bag between steeps. Within you'll find a reasonable roomy satchet full of choppy bits of flavorful sencha along with a modest sprinkling of matcha. Read Full Review
I like it. It's not the most complex sencha I've had, but it has a...

I usually dislike green teas because they taste smoky, but there's no smokiness here. Weak, vegetable-like aroma, with a rich, nutty, vegetable flavor that's strong and yes, a bit bitter. I put a touch of sugar in and it was very good. Read Full Review

The aroma of the fairly massive leaves is very green, a mix of edamame, spinach, and a bit of hay and grass. It is not the most complex Sencha I have ever sniffed, but the aroma is strong and a good blend of sweet and green, I enjoy it and can certainly see this being an excellent tea to sniff while focusing on the moo...Read Full Review

I am new to pursuing specific qualities in tea - after being let down by my favorite big-name tea brand, I am trying out teas that are farmed more responsibly, and processed more simply. Mellow Monk meets those initial standards, as far as I can tell, sans trave...

This sencha has large pieces of intact leaf, and looks and smells like a very typical sencha.Read Full Review
Brews up a yellow-green cup, so vibrant in color that it looks almost like it is glowing.
The aroma is spinachy and seaweedy, and the flavor is strongly umami, slightly sweet, and slightly bitter. There's a hint of corn...

This was a great tea! It has a hearty vegetable flavor satisfied my taste buds like no other, and the smell was fantastic. I also loved the cheery bright green color! Read Full Review
I made one brew of this tea, letting it steep for 3 minutes, as suggested. I didn't get a chance to try other steepings, hopefully in the future I...

Not a bad sencha. Not a great one either. This is the sort of tea you drink on a daily basis without any sort of sentimental attachment, until the brand implements changes years on and you find yourself nostalgic for the old packaging of your youth.Read Full Review

Thanks to Brytta Sopword for the sample!Read Full Review
A low-grade sencha that is remarkably enjoyable for what it is.
Flavor is bold, a pleasant bitterness (easily becoming too much if oversteeped), and slight sweet, sour, and savory qualities. Aroma toasty, with a strong warming quality, but also with vegetal notes and fain...

I found this at $5.75 for a 7 ounce bag, making it some of the cheapest loose leaf tea I've ever found. Excellent value!Read Full Review
That said, unfortunately, the tea goes bitter far too easily. The leaves are cut very small, allowing it to diffuse quickly. At the bottom of my cup are dark green fannings that couldn't be strain...

Very solid, smooth tea! The vegetal scent and flavor reminded me of tea in Japan, and I appreciated the bright green tint of the water. I've enjoyed a few cups of it already, but want to brew it again tomorrow, then give a fuller review once I've really had time to sit down and enjoy it.Read Full Review

Excellent sencha! This tastes exactly like the tea I had while living in Japan. Pleasantly grassy, smoothly savory with a light sweetness. Goes great with food too. Simply great tea. Highly recommended!Read Full Review
Each bag has quite a lot of tea in it, so I definitely recommend both a relatively short steep time and repeated i...

The aroma of the vibrantly green leaves is sweet, a blend of sweet hay, grass, and spinach. There is a touch of seaweed at the finish giving the tea a bit of that sea-side aroma that I so love in teas. It might be the name playing havoc with my sense, but the aroma really does remind me of summer.Read Full Review

Tea leaves are small, rolled, deep dark emerald green. Put 1tsp in about 8-10oz of water around 175 degrees F for brewing, for around 1:30.
Tea is very sweet, grassy, and fresh tasting. More of a green color than the cloudy yellow of som...

This is a mellow tea, and probably my favorite sencha I've ever tried, and I also think it is one that would have broad appeal. I found it very easy to brew, pleasantly aromatic, and relatively smooth in flavor, in every incarnation. I also found that it lasted through multiple infusions better than any other Japanes...Read Full Review

My coarse palette can fortunately enjoy only strong green tea, and these tend to be the cheap ones. It's a good thing I can get a 7 oz bag of this stuff online for $3.50, since I drink a big thermos of it everyday. Read Full Review

The aroma is very green, like fresh grass and moisture, an odd description, but it reminded me of the way cut grass smells after a brief rain storm. There is also a touch of nuttiness and sweetness with an end note of sweet peas.Read Full Review

The aroma is sweet and green, fresh grass and kelp with a touch of artichoke cover the vegetal end. Chestnut and very faint citrus notes cover the mild sweetness. This tea is very much so the 'ideal' of a Sencha, basically it smells exactly like you expect a Sencha to smell like.Read Full Review

A nice, simple green tea. The flavor is weaker than I would like, though. The aroma is likewise nice but too weak. I'd love to try a more robust version of this style tea.Read Full Review

I have been drinking more organic teas lately, as they are becoming more available. This deep steamed Fukamushi Sencha from Den's Tea has been a great find with excellent flavor and aroma. It is a bit pricy but worthwhile as the steaming releases nuances that brew up very quickly for several steeps. Read Full Review
