Japan Sencha .KowaNovember 5, 2006 at 2:01 am | Posted in Green Tea, just green tea, Sencha, Tea Reviews | 2 Comments
looseleaf 8.99 made by Kowa company (i think they’re into the coffee business.)
my bugger with this: they call it ‘Japan Sencha’ yet its made in Spain?
great packaging: airtight metal box (this should be a model to all who boast about their supposed ‘freshness’.)
dry leaf: varying shapes, some stem, some brown stem = “quality is low”
flavor: tastes green, astringency does not bother too much.
astringent continues in the aftertaste along with a lemony sensation.
if this is all sencha green tea leaf and nothing else thats good because i detect some lemon on my tongue. or maybe its the green twigs or something from the plant… i remember chewing tree leaves when young… but im pretty sure its lemony… i think i sense it in the smell as well.
yes. nah, made up my mind. i don’t think so.
