drank Japanese Sencha by Harney & Sons
16 tasting notes

While I’m not new to “green tea” this really is somewhat new territory for me. Outside of matcha I’ve never had any awareness of what sort of tea was in whatever “green tea” I was drinking, so it may not have even been a quality tea to begin with in most cases. That could also be why I was never much of a fan of green tea (outside of matcha, I love that).

This is the first time I am aware to have had “sencha” so I spent a little time learning what I could about this particular tea, which I learned is from Shizuoka province, the largest tea producing Japanese province. In that regard I suppose this is a fair starter sencha.

The flavor is distinctly green, dark green in fact. At first I was thinking grassy, similar to a shot of wheatgrass, but further along it clearly became a bowl of sauteed spinach (sans garlic or other flavorings) that had transformed into pure liquid form in a cup. It’s substantial in both flavor and body.

I liked it.
