This one is definitely a winner! It punches well above it's price range for Japanese green tea. Lovely flavour and great colour. It also delivers your caffine in such a away that you can be so awake but without buzz or jitters!
This is my favorite daily sencha, and favorite tea in general. The sencha/matcha blend is wonderful because it allows you to get excellent results through multiple steepings. The matcha will add sweetness and counterbalance the astringency of the sencha on the first steep, giving you a strong and bright first cup. For the second steep and beyond, the matcha is mostly gone, as well as the most of the bitterness from sencha, giving you a mellower, milder cup that is still nicely balanced. I like to do a shorter first steep and a much longer second steep, which I find gives me a balanced yet full bodied extraction each time.

The best green tea I've ever had outside of Japan. I'm neither a particularly vain person nor a tea snob, but I really appreciate a great cup of tea. This is a cup so great that, when brewed correctly, you almost don't feel worthy of it. It's as if you somehow made a mistake in preparing it because it's that good. I have found that, for my personal taste, 75-77*C and 3ish minutes of brew time is optimal. That said, the suggested 80*C and 1.5-2*C is plenty good.
If you've been turned off green tea in the past because most coffee shops and restaurants burn the living daylights out of the leaves with 99*C water, look no further than right here right now for something to renew your faith.

I accidentally ordered 2 x 50g bags of this, just an oversight of mine when I was putting together my 1st Tealyra "sampler" order. When I received my order, and realized my mistake, I was a bit disappointed as this Match Iri Sencha was the least anticipated of the 5 different teas I ordered. It was the token green tea on the order, which also had one white tea, one oolong, one pu-er, and one rooibos. However, it turned out to be a good mistake as this tea is delicious! Of course, I would've saved money by just ordering 100g instead of 2 x 50g, but no biggie. Brewed correctly, it makes a vibrant green cup of tea that tastes less grassy than other green teas I've tried. Smooth and subtle flavour. Definitely will be a re-order for me....eventually.

Un seul mot: Sublime! Une odeur de matcha et une bonne longueur en bouche.

Absolutely my new favorite tea. It is just perfect in every way.

A gorgeous cup - the vibrant green matcha colour paired with the more 'serious' sencha taste. A perfect partner for light morning exercises or simply watching the sunrise through the steam.

I'm thoroughly enjoying this cup of Matcha Iri Sencha! It has a full Japanese Sencha green tea flavor with a rich matcha green color and a deep deep flavor! It has zero astringency, isn't bitter at all. I think this is one of my favorites.

[FR] Un très bon thé. Toutefois, peu de longueur en bouche. Thé dont le rapport qualité-prix est excellent.
