Product Options
Sencha is the most-consumed green tea in Japan. Ours is grown in the volcanic soil of the southern island of Kyushu, the second largest tea growing area of Japan. This is a beautiful leaf that steeps to a lightly vegetative liquor. Perfect for cold-steeping. It's healthy because it contains the powerful antioxidant EGCG. Drink four cups each day - hot or cold. Remember to never put boiling water on green tea!

Also available in pyramid sachets.

So I've been looking for a quality looseleaf green tea, but all the dragonwell teas are getting outrageously expensive, what with the ridiculous health craze about green tea. I used to get top grade Rishi organic dragonwell teas for less than $30/lb, but those days are long past. Anyway, so I decided to take a chance with this green tea from Elmwood Inn. As it turns out, this sencha is very good. It's grassy and lightly sweet with very little bitterness. It brews to a very sencha-like, distinctive green cup. It's no lungjing, but it's very good. I would say my only minor complaint is that the bag does contain a fair amount of stems with no leaves attached, but for this price, it's acceptable. This is a solid value, and the quality is very good. I recommend this if anyone is in the market. It certainly blows bagged sencha such as Kirkland Signature Ito En Matcha Blend (Green Tea) (which is really MOSTLY sencha with a little matcha powder thrown in) out of the water!
