With so many varieties of green teas on the marketplace nowadays, it is sometimes difficult to decide which one to choose. I know I wanted one at a bulk green tea at a good price, a certain size package, and a well-known manufacturer. I found all of those requirements in Sen-cha Green Tea from Yamamotoyama of America.
The green tea is sold in bulk, not tea bags. That means that it does not go through another production process as that found in tea bags. Having the Sen-cha green tea in bulk provides me with the opportunity to make either a single cup or teapot full at a time. In fact, this brand of Yamamotoyama green tea makes a great pot of beverage simply by using my automatic coffeemaker. That is another strong point to this economical beverage.
Sen-cha Green Tea also makes an excellent iced tea, when I am in the mood. All I need to do is make a pot of hot tea, cool it, and place it into another container. It can keep in the refrigerator for about a week, if need be. This tea is also delicious at room temperature.
This green tea is packaged very attractively. The package printing and coloring consist of a pleasant variety of different shades of green and rust. The solid coloring covers the bottom and top portions of the bag. The contrasting rust-colored teapot, package heading, and Japanese language are all perfectly blended to provide an eye-appealing ‘front’ side. Another thing that is nice about the packaging is the fact I can see what the tea looks like due to the center section being clear. There is no clear portion on the backside, though. Here, I can read the nutrition facts, which are in both Japanese and English.
Plus, the package is secured, making it impossible to gain access to the green tea without either cutting or pulling apart.
The Sen-cha Green Tea by Yamamotoyama comes in a 7-ounce size bag. That is a perfect size for my household. It lasts awhile, which is nice. One 8-ounce cup of tea only requires about one teaspoon of this bulk green tea.
The price is on the lower end for all bulk green teas I found. At first I was skeptical, but after tasting it, I am now pleased.
The price provides for a sense of economy, taste, and nutrition.
The taste is on the sweet side, light, and very refreshing. That taste level comes from about a minute of steeping time. When I steep the Sen-cha green tea for longer, of course, the taste is more concentrated and not as sweet. It still is refreshing, though. The salesperson told me that this green tea was “bottom of barrel”, but I cannot complain. It is a good bargain for the price, in my opinion.
For anyone not familiar with bulk green tea, or wanting to experience a reasonably priced one, I recommend Yamamotoyama of America’s Sen-cha Green Tea. Thumbs up.
