Taster’s Review:

The dry leaves are cut very thin and fine, and they are a very dark green.  After infusing, the leaves expand to about triple their pre-infusion size, and are a more vivid, bright green color.  The aroma is lightly vegetative.

The flavor is truly unique from any Sencha I’ve tried.  It has a very pleasant, savory quality to it.  Like its scent, it is a soft vegetative taste.  It is sweet with a lovely creamy flavor and texture.  The mouthfeel does not linger, however, as there is a very slight astringency that cleanses the palate.

The flavor is so mild and soothing.  At the end of this long day, I can feel it calm me.  It seems to actually relax the tension in my shoulders!  This is one amazing Sencha, indeed!

I could not find this tea on Den’s website, so if you’re interested, I strongly recommend contacting them to find out if you can obtain some of this incredible tea!  It is definitely worth the effort!


Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!

Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
