Culinary Teas Sencha Green Tea Review
A Very Pleasant Unflavored and Unscented
Summary : There isn't really that much to say about
this tea. It's unflavored. It's unscented. It is...basically...just a
very pleasant "straight" Japanese Sencha Green Tea that tastes great
and slides down smoothly.
Review : I've been reviewing lots of exotically flavored
and infused teas recently. So, with nothing better to do at 12:30 am
on a Thursday morning, I figured it was time to try a "straight tea",
or a tea that simply is tea leaves and nothing more. No flavors. No infusion.
No flowers. Just tea.
And so the search through the collection of teas I have began. The first
that met my needs was
Japanese Sencha Green Tea.
So, I ripped open the light-proof, vacumn sealed bag that all their
sampler teas come packaged in and gave this tea a try.
My first impression of this tea was a good one. Basically, the tea had
a moderately strong fragrance of...you guess it...sencha green tea leaves.
Indeed, I would have been disappointed if it had been anything else.
Here is how
Culinary Teas describes this tea : "A good value, pan-fired Sencha green tea from Shizuoka
prefecture. Our most popular Japanese green tea that is light in color
but rich and full in cup."
The description provided on their website is perfectly accurate. The
tea leaves are light green. The taste of the tea is very light..and happily...without
any bitterness. But yet, this tea does have a pretty powerful flavor
to it. Exactly what the "full in cup" means I have no idea, so I won't
even go there.
Overall, this is a high quality and tasty pure sencha green tea. For
those who enoy "straight" green teas, and sencha green teas in particular,
definitely head on over to
Culinary Teasand give this tea a try. That said, people who have never drank green tea before
may prefer one that has been "infused" with some flavorings, such as a Mint Green
Recommendation : Yes. Unless you are new to drinking
gree tea (if so, try Culinary Teas
Mint Green Tea), you will definitely
like this tea. This is especially so if you hate anything added into
a green tea.
