Japanese tea culture has gained immense popularity worldwide, with matcha and sencha being two of the most popular Japanese teas. In this article, we will provide an introduction to matcha and sencha, two unique teas with distinct flavors and brewing methods.

Matcha, a powdered green tea made by grinding shade-grown tea leaves into a fine powder, has a strong, earthy flavor and is commonly used in Japanese tea ceremonies. Sencha, on the other hand, is the most popular tea in Japan and is made from unshaded tea leaves, resulting in a grassy, vegetal flavor with a slight bitterness.

To prepare matcha, you need a special bowl, whisk, and scoop. Similarly, to prepare sencha, you need loose leaf tea, a teapot, and a strainer. By learning about and trying these teas, you can discover the rich and fascinating world of Japanese tea culture.

Whether you prefer a rich, creamy matcha or a light, refreshing sencha, Japanese tea is sure to delight your taste buds. Explore the best Japanese tea options today and discover the unique flavors and brewing methods that make them a popular choice worldwide.

In addition to their unique flavors and brewing methods, matcha and sencha have several health benefits. Matcha is high in antioxidants and has been shown to boost metabolism and promote relaxation.

Smooth like silk on the palate. The scent of the roasted rice and matcha intemingling like the finest fragrance.

Excellent sencha. I did not taste any bitterness at all.

My favourite

The taste is balanced And not too bitter

Thank you so much for sharing your taste review. :)

Balanced of sweetness and bitterness

This one is the perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness for me. I am not fan of bitterness of tea but this combination of sweetness and little bitt of bitterness makes me feel energetic. I smell and taste the freshness with every sip in the morning. it contains 20 grams I feel the quantity is not too much. So now I wanna try their other matcha to compare.

Hello, Amber.
Thanks for leaving a thoughtful review about our matcha.

My Favorite Matcha

I have used this Koiai matcha for 3 years now since my Japanese friend recommend. I love it! It is the best I have tasted. It's fresh and nutty as well. I used to drink coffee every morning but now I make my own Matcha lattes at home. It is very dense because it is high quality ceremonial matcha so make sure you sift matcha for creamy and foaming.

Thank you for loving KOIAI Matcha. We will share this great review with our farmers. Thank you again.

Lacking customer service

I reached out twice to Osada Tea regarding my tea order, once before I bought the tea and once after regarding the discount that I did not apply and the first time a question about radiation. I never heard from anybody on either of my questions. Also the tea that I ordered tastes really bad and I don’t know why but I just can’t drink it so I was a bit of a waste of money for me and I will not be re-ordering
