Leaf Type: Green
Where to Buy: Frontier Co-Op
Brothy, vegetal, fresh and bright, this quintessential Japanese green tea can be enjoyed all day long. It is also an excellent tea to serve guests.
I like Frontier Co-Op. I can always find their products at my local Whole Foods Market, and I can always count on them to provide good tasting, organic teas at decent prices.
This Japanese Sencha is a fine example. The flavor is sweet and smooth. It has a pleasant vegetative taste that doesn’t come off as too grassy. It has a very nice, light flavor that makes for the perfect tea to enjoy with meals. I especially like it when eating something spicy because the soft mouthfeel coats the palate lightly and offers some relief from the heat!
This Sencha may not be as fancy as some of the flavored teas that I’ve reviewed, but it is delicious and I really like that it is certified organic. It tastes great hot or iced. I especially like it with iced with a thin slice of lemon or a sprig of mint – it’s very refreshing!
