Japanese Sencha from Bare Tea

Aug. 9th, 2014

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!

Each bag has quite a lot of tea in it, so I definitely recommend both a relatively short steep time and repeated i...

Jun. 20th, 2014

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.

The first steep i...

May. 20th, 2014

Picked this tea up on the recommendation of a friend, found it a good value.

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...

May. 16th, 2014

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...

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.

I boil water in a teapot, then turn off the heat and toss the leaves right in, and let them steep for...

Mar. 24th, 2014

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.

The taste is a bit grassy and sweet like stone fruit, there is a touch of fresh kelp an...

Mar. 19th, 2014

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.

The taste is a fantastic blend of fr...

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.

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.

I have been drinking this tea for the last few months and it is the best tea I ever drank! I feel more energized and I its satisfying. Finally I found an organic tea that I can taste the green tea leaves. I highly recommend trying the bare tea brand. Also try the apple green tea and massala chai!

I agree with Alex, I thought this was one of the better bagged Senchas I've had so far. I really enjoyed the fresh grassy smell and the spinachy taste. I brewed it for a short time, so its taste wasn't too overpowering.

The aroma is exactly what you expect a good Sencha to smell like: fresh grass, springtime, and a touch of citrus. The aroma of the brewed tea is like a spring field with sweet notes of cane sugar and hay.

The taste is initially sweet and grassy, evoking spring. There is also a hint of citrus in the aftertaste. Quit...

Jan. 2nd, 2014

Definitely among the best senchas (if not the best) that I've ever had from a tea bag!

Flavor is mild and a little brothy. Aroma is slightly toasty, slightly seaweedy.

Easily brews two infusions...the first two cups are outstanding for a tea bag, although they have less of that pleasant sweet grass quality that ...

I will start by saying right off, I am not a seasoned green tea drinker. I am learning. I found this at a local super market. Price was right, I felt, so I went for it. I will admit, I thought the packaging was 'cute', but the bag inside did rip easily as another reviewer noted, and was hard to keep the tea in. I ...

For me is a wonderful tea, it has a mild herbal and "chlorophylly" flavor. Nice to my palate.

If you want a good tea this is an option.

Very different from any other sencha I have tried. Complex, rich, and interesting. I would especially recommend this for people who don't like the fresh grassy and seaweedy tones of sencha, because it had the least of these characteristics of among any sencha I've tried. It was ever-so-slightly more oolong-like.

Aug. 27th, 2013

A very bold sencha that has a full body and pleasant aroma, but is easy to oversteep, and I find is a bit harsh no matter how I prepare it.

Dry leaf is very dark and smells strongly fruity, and has little of the vegetal or seaweedy tones I usually expect from sencha.

Brews a surprisingly bitter cup, but rather cl...

In short steeps, I find this sencha much better than if you you steep for the full 2 minutes recommended on the package. Nice aroma and flavor with grassy notes, and prominent brothy (umami) qualities that make it rich yet refreshing. The second and third steeps off the leaves always seem better to me. Affordable quali...

This tastes like a typical low-quality green tea. I don't usually like green tea very much. I like this better than higher quality green teas, but nothing stands out to me about it. It has a very mild flavor. I added cream and sugar.

A very pleasant and affordable green tea. Strangely potent, given how mild tasting it is.

I tend not to like these matcha-infused teas, preferring either to drink actual matcha or just plain green tea, but this one was better than some of them. I also found that more of the matcha character came out in this tea th...

A good sencha that infuses very quickly. In my opinion, much better than Wegman's Tomo Sencha, although pricier.

The dry leaf has a very dark green color and fine texture, and is intensely aromatic: highly vegetal and suggestive of sweetness and umami.

Brews a surprisingly clear and pale cup, especially relative...

Feb. 8th, 2013

I played around with the brewing times on this one a bit, and find that I like it best a little 'overbrewed'. The website says to steep it at 176F for about a minute and a half, but that made it come out a little bland by my standards. Doubling the time to three minutes produced a bracing, umami type flavor I really li...

This is by far the oddest sencha I have tried. It completely lacked the fresh, herbal, almost "oceany" seaweed taste of an authentic sencha. It contained a stale off note that is hard to describe yet ruined the experience completely.

I cannot help wondering if something awful happened to this tea on its way to th...
