lupicia-fukamushi-matsuri.jpgAccording to Wikipedia, Sencha is a Japanese green tea that is made without grinding the tea leaves. It is first steamed and then the leaves are rolled, shaped, and dried. Finally, after drying, the leaves are fired to aid in their preservation and to add flavor. This tea came packaged in a silky tea pyramid that was very similar to the kind several other companies use. The leaves were a deep green color. I was a little disappointed to see that most of the leaves were not whole. Iʼm not sure if it is supposed to be that way or if the leaves were broken en route .

There was no detectable aroma from the leaves before brewing. When I added water it instantly became a cloudy, almost neon green color. The taste seemed a bit off. It was too astringent for my tastes. I like my green teas to be much more vegetal than this. A large amount of leaf particles had settled on the bottom of my cup before I even finished drinking. That was a bit of a turn off for me as it reminded me of algae. I would probably not recommend this tea.
