Review of Japan Sencha Organic (No. 700)

5 of 102 of 53 of 540 of 100

Half-litre pot at home, made from a sample included in the tea company's Advent Tea Calendar (2020) and consisting of very fine Sencha leaves, some of them even pulverised - not a good sign in a tea from a respectable company selling quality products. Pours clear very pale green (against white china), with no sediment. Faint aroma of Sencha leaves, i.e. beans and fart, if anything. Very mild flavour of Sencha, actually barely detectable, with a mildly beany aftertaste on a slightly rough palate. Well, honestly, I do not know what to think of it. I have never been a fan of pure Sencha (unlike flavoured green tea, which I usually like a lot), but I keep giving it a chance. I followed the brewing time specified on the packaging (nay, actually exceeded it by 25%), wondering why it was so short. And, well, sure enough, the flavour is hard to be impressed by. For those who like Sencha, this sample probably comes at a reasonable price, given the context (ca. €0.42 per 1 sample in the collection). I do not entertain the idea of investing in a regular portion, though.
