Teabag Organic Sencha (28bags x 5g/0.18oz)

Review I heard that green tea was healthy and a fat burner. I scoured the web researching green tea and started finding pill supplements, processed tea from many sources both loose and in teabags with pros and cons on all of them. One link I chased was to Chinese Green Tea and found that there are possible trace amounts of lead in their teas because of the mountainous soil use in cultivation. I then found Japanese Green Teas at Hibiki-An so I decided to start here.

I selected Sencha for the high levels of Catechin and the other medicinal benefits. I also chose tea bags as a convenience rather than loose tea and am amazed at how much tea there is in each bag. Kudos to Hibiki-An for the abundance of leaves.
Shipping took sixteen days to Texas but is not a problem.
Taste is, well, different, obviously, than orange pekoe or oolong so maybe it is an acquired taste. The MATSUBA Yunomi will add to the experience.
So, 4 stars for product, service, website education for a new green tea drinker.
Very bad...Bad...Very bad...Ordinary...Good... 4 of 5 Stars!
