Review of Sencha Overture

8 of 105 of 54 of 587 of 100
ExcellentExcellentGood Value

This was the first green tea I ever tried, and I liked it quite a bit.

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 far, but I liked this one second-best after their hojicha.

Hello, and welcome to RateTea, and thank you for your first few reviews!

I also have tried this particular tea so it's interesting to compare our perceptions of it. For someone who hasn't tried much green tea, I was surprised to find how spot-on your description is to the way I've read a lot of other more experienced tea drinkers describe sencha.

I find a lot of sencha (the type of green tea this is) to have a spinachy quality, and I also find it's common for them to have grassy and fishy or seaweedy qualities too, and also the savory quality, and astringency.

This isn't my favorite sencha that I've tried though, nor was it my favorite green tea from Adagio...so I would encourage you to keep exploring. You may find both senchas from other companies, and other green teas, that you enjoy more than this one! But you may also have different tastes from me...I think I actually liked Adagio's kukicha more than their sencha (I tend to like kukicha more across the board).

Let me know if you have any questions about the site or about tea! I look forward to reading more of your reviews!

Thanks for the welcome, and for creating this site! I am very interested in trying other companies and types of tea, so I'm sure this site will be very useful. I wasn't sure whether I should post reviews since I'm unlikely to notice/say anything not already brought up in existing reviews, but I guess it won't hurt to underline the things that are so blatantly obvious about a tea that anyone should be able to notice them. :)
