This tea is a very good value for the price.
Certainly an every day tea. Very enjoyable. Nothing extraordinary to note, but definitely worth at least drinking a cup a day. Would highly recommend for beginning tea drinkers and then experiment in the higher cost range.

This is a perfect tea to get a taste of Japanese greens. If you are just starting out, I'd highly suggest to get this tea as well as several of the higher priced teas on this site (plus a kyusu of course). This tea will let you learn how to brew sencha as well as help you understand its basic flavor profile for a low cost. Nevertheless, for the price, this tea is a great deal!

I drink this sencha every day at work. It may not be the best sencha ever, but it might be the best value ever! I like it more than the "premium" sencha my local tea shop sells for more than double the price.
As a beginner I'm really glad I picked this tea!
It can be mild or strong depending on your tea leaves to water ratio. It's not too bitter or too overpowering either, very well balanced :)
Having only grown up with black tea, it took some time getting used to the flavour. After a few cups I got really addicted, I didn't know sencha was something I would crave :)

Excellent green tea for daily use.
This daily Sencha is realy good value for the price for daily sencha drinking. It surprised me many times in comparison with several more expensive teas with its rich taste. Even in second and third infusion. My favorite daily tea at this time.

This is a great tasting sencha and I am able to get 3 infusions (1 min/30 sec/1.5 min). The only downside is that the tea particle size can be small (may have just been the packet I received) and it clogs my very fine tea pot strainer. Not really an issue as I have a glass tea pot and can adjust the tea level to compensate, but this may be frustrating for other opaque tea pots.
