Very fresh taste, blends perfectly in cold water, prefer it to matcha.

This tea is excellent! It tastes great and is the cheapest on the Internet. I also like the fact that it comes in 60 gm packages as it is important to use up green tea quickly once opened as the antioxidants keep diminishing as they are exposed to air, light and heat. Therefore, this is just the right amount for one person for the month. Highly recommended.

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.
