Product information

Unlike most Senchas which are grown in full sun, this particular example is shaded for 18 days before plucking, making it more akin to a Gyokuro - a style of steamed green tea widely considered to be Japan's finest. This unique shading process brings out the tea's rich, characteristic umami flavour, as well as more sweetness. The dark, silky leaves produce a vibrant green cup with a fresh, spring-like aroma and smooth, delicately sweet finish. Reinfuse up to 3 times.

Way over priced

There are other reviewers complaining about the price and the deceptive packaging size, and I totally agree. The tea is pleasant, but nothing special, which makes it way over priced for what it is. Some special green teas can be very expensive, but this is not it. For comparable grade, Tea Pig’s organic Mao Feng loose tea sold on Ocado is a slightly different green tea, but in my view at least equally nice in its own way, and is priced at £4 per 75g. That’s about one quarter of the price of this one per gramme. If you must have Sencha, there are pretty decent ones on Amazon for a quarter of this price too.

Nice tea, ludicrously over-sized packaging

Nice taste but when you open the box you will find a tiny packet of tea. Not worth the price at around £1 a cup

Turned me into a green tea fan

I wasn't a fan of green but i tried this at their tea bar in London. It's so different, with a fresh, smooth taste and a little sweetness.

My new favourite green tea

I was surprised by how savoury this green tea was but I've grown to absolutely love it. You can also keep using the leaves with multiple infusions so although its a bit more money you get a lot of cups for your bucks
