Uji Organic Powdered Sencha


Score: 5.00. Votes: 5

From Uji. Although it may look similar to matcha, this product is sencha and has different taste characteristics - it's a bit more astringent. However, because Uji Organic Powdered Sencha is grown under full sun it is poplular with those seeking maximum antioxidant levels from their tea. From the first harvest, the leaves used to produce this green tea are grown under full sun and are then ground into a fine, talcum-like. 100% certified JAS/JONA organic. No teapot needed with this item! Mix 1/4 teaspoon (included with package) in hot water and you will have an immediate supply of the healthy ingredients in green tea. Many add this to their shake mixes. Try it today!

    Great quality product. I was looking for something a bit more affordable and different than matcha and I found it in this product. Dissolves very easily in any liquid-- it's more finely milled than any matcha I've had. Clean, grassy flavor which is exactly what I was wanting. It doesn't have a very attractive color when mixed with water, sort of like a dull brownish green, but I suspect this is very typical with powdered sencha and so I don't count that against it. Will definitely consider ordering again, but I'm also on the look-out for newer sencha, as this one is from 2014 and while very good might still be lacking in optimal flavor. Overall, great though!

    I initially bought this as a "cheaper alternative" to matcha.  I also wanted to use this item occasionally on my face as a face mask (I've always used tea on my face, but wanted to try a powdered version as a paste- and by the way, it works WONDERS... but that is another topic).  When the tea arrived, I was pleasantly surprised that it was much more green than I expected.  And the texture is very fine.  I quickly changed my mind from thinking of this tea as a "matcha alternative" to simply a "powdered sencha" and as a tea with different characteristics.  I love the taste of this tea and love that the price is justifiable to use as an occasional cosmetic item. Would recommend. Advantages: Good price, taste, fine texture, color.

    O-Cha was out of the non-organic version of their sencha powder when I needed to place an order, so I went with this organic version instead. Overall it is quite good if you know what to expect. O-Cha is very straightforward about this kind of tea NOT being matcha (unlike other vendors). Advantages: In my experience, this powder dissolves much better than the non-organic version (in cold water). It is the same strong grassy taste one might expect from fine-powdered sencha leaves.  Disadvantages: The aftertaste is a bit more bitter than that of the non-organic version.

    I have ordered Matcha from you and really loved the high quality you offered but I am sourcing for a powdered green tea having a lower caffeine level than Matcha and I came across your powdered Sencha. 2 questions:

    1) The product detail mentioned year of the product was 2014. Does that mean the tea was harvested in 2014 and kept till now? How fresh will the product be if that's the case?

    2) This organic item mentioned packaging comes with a scoop for measuring the right amount per serving, does the other non organic packaging one also comes with a scoop?

    The 2014 marking was a typo, this item was produced in 2015, sorry for the misinformation. This item is freshly packaged. This year's version will probably come out in late May or early June.

    Only the 60 gram organic powdered sencha comes with a scoop. However, it's just a small plastic scoop for convenience sake.
