Taster’s Review:

The more I have of these green tea powder packets from Shi Zen … the more I like them.   Today, I’m trying the Pesticide-Free Japanese Green Tea Powder Packets from Shi Zen.  It’s deliciously sweet and invigorating to sip.

I start with a small bottle of water (16.9 ounces) and I open two packets of the powdered green tea.  I pour one packet at a time, and give the bottle a good shake in between adding the packets, just to get the tea well incorporated and hopefully to avoid getting clumps of tea in my drink.  And at first, I did get some clumps … but, after some vigorous shaking, the clumps dissolved and I’m left with a really delicious beverage for on the go.

The tea is really refreshing … I like this better than one of the bottled ready-to-drink teas that you can buy in a convenience store, because it’s not all sugar and corn syrup.  I can taste the goodness of the green tea in this.  I taste the grassy, vegetative tones and the sweet, lush flavor.  It is sweet … there is absolutely no bitterness here.  There is also virtually no astringency to this – that is to say, I can’t detect any astringency to this at all.  It’s just smooth and easy to drink … whether you’re sipping or guzzling it down!

I like that this is pesticide-free.  I like that this is pure green tea that’s been pulverized into a powder, and that once you’ve shaken it up … it stays incorporated.  You don’t have to keep shaking in between sips.  It’s a great way to stay hydrated on warm summer days like this one, and far tastier (and healthier!) than the RTD teas that you’ll find.  This one gets two enthusiastic thumbs up from me!


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!
