Matcha Sendo from Camellia Sinensis


Tea Information:

Leaf Type:  Green (Matcha)

Where to Buy:  Camellia Sinensis

Product Description:

This Matcha has an aroma of berries and dark chocolate. On the palate, you’ll be seduced by the rich and full texture, and the surprising notes of Jerusalem artichokes.

Taster’s Review:

This is such a beautiful Matcha.  The color of the powder is so bright green and it produces a gorgeous jade colored liquid that is a bit of heaven in a chawan!

I can detect the notes of berry and chocolate in the aroma, which I find so intriguing.  I don’t think I’ve ever experienced an unflavored Matcha with this sort of fragrance.  It’s captivating.

The flavor and texture of this tea is very smooth.  It coats the palate with its sweet, vegetative flavor. A hint of bitter reveals itself just before the end of the sip.  This savory bitterness seems to arrive just in time to cut through the sweetness and provide a little dimension.

I must agree with the above product description:  this Matcha does have an artichoke flavor.  It is a very broth-y, satisfying Matcha.  This is one of the best Matcha teas I’ve tasted, and I would recommend it to all the Matcha fans out there.  This is superb!

    Good review, thanks.

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
