Most Helpful Customer Reviews

As a beginner green tea drinker, I got this to try what I was told and read was very good brand. It is my first foray beyond grocery store green tea bags, so I intentionally tried sencha. It is nothing like the grocery store green teas (which may or may not be sencha, but it is all I have to compare it to). It is a beautiful green color when brewed and if you used the right lower water temp for green tea and a tsp or less per 6-8oz water, it is very smooth yet full of flavor. Note if you use a heaping or even a full teaspoon you will find it quite bitter or at least way too astringent for me. Best of all is the smell. I notice this the most after I take a sip and breathe. I can taste/smell an aroma that is very pleasant--sweet and complex and less seaweedy than grocery store stuff. It is a better value than what I thought at first too, because you do not need that much per cup.
Further proof that tastes vary. Yes, this is a quality green tea and it does have a decent flavor. I know sencha is supposed to be "vegetal", but this is a bit much for me. Harvey's does make an enjoyable loose leaf green tea seeping if not done for too long. The lighter the better for me in this case. I also purchased this to use in my new matcha machine since quality tencha leaves are so hard to come by. It grinds well and makes a passable matcha -- though not on par with ceremonial grade pre-ground teas or even many of the culinary grade.

If a green tea with lots of umami is your thing, then H&S do it right here. It is a good tea. It may be a bit overwhelming for some however. If you tend to like black, puh-er and darker oolong teas, then this may not be for you.

Really enjoy this tea. It is indistinguishable from the 'Rishi' brand Sencha tea I've also had. Value-wise, you get pretty much double the amount of tea for the same price with this product. Plus, a handy tin. Brilliant!
