Chiswick Tea Co 1kg Japanese Sencha Premium Loose Leaf Tea – : On the nose I didn’t like it. But it tasted fresh and nice

Good tasting tea and at a great price. Good tasting tea and at a great price. Large leaves and with a nice ‘grassy’ note. I will certainly be buying from chiswick tea co again.

Must have japanese green tea. The leaves are dark and deep green, almost closer to a gyokuro shaded tea in colour. The flavour is sweet, subtle and grassy, this is very much not a strong tea so ensuring you have high quality water is a must (avoid tap water with this one). This is one of the highest quality sencha teas i have seen at its price range and is a must have if you are a fan of japanese green teas.

I bought this for a present for my mum, it is packaged well and she said it was great. Here are the specifications for the Chiswick Tea Co 1kg Japanese Sencha Premium Loose Leaf Tea –:

  • Grown on the Shizuoka slopes in the shadow of Mt. Fuji, this tea encapsulates the taste of Japan.
  • When brewed it turns a clear chartreuse, and this reflects the subtle release of herbaceous astringency that we love from a great green tea.
  • Overriding this, however, are mild hints of nori, and there are few better drinks to pair with a plate of sushi.
  • Shizuoka, Japan. Packaged in the UK

Great value and quality product. This tea has a good strong flavour and a pleasant colour.

As always – excellent product, excellent service. As always – excellent product, excellent service, fast delivery. This is one of my favourite green teas. Will definitely order again in future.

    I am a regular green tea drinker, tried many different varieties and from my experience with the green teas – it’s a fairly good one. Also a good value for money.

    On the nose i didn’t like it. But it tasted fresh and nice. The product packing was presentable. The tea looked the same as in the photo. On the nose i didn’t like it. But it tasted fresh and nice. Although i would prefer fujian oolong over sencha.

    1. Genuinely surprised at the superb quality. I was definitely lost when it came to choosing which green tea to buy and in all honesty resigned myself to probably having to buy a few different ones to find a good one. I gave this a shot as being at the cheaper end of the scale, there’s not much to lose at £4 delivered. I think i struck lucky though.Even in its dehydrated form the tea is a deep green colour and as mentioned in another review there’s no bits of stalk in there, just tea leaves (see the attached photo). There would be no issue with this in a strainer either as the pieces are quite large. The taste is lovely, not too strong but definitely better than most others i’ve tried. I feel a bit of a fraud for knocking 1 star off though as it’s nothing to do with the tea itself; the packaging is just really difficult to open if like me you’re unlucky enough for the rip off strip to leave only a tiny amount of plastic left. Still at least the stress of opening it is relieved by the lovely teaupdate: forgot to mention, the delivery originally came up as 7 days, it arrived after only 2 though.

    1. The tea leaves are a deep green color. There are virtually no sticks/stems in the bag. The taste and smell are pleasant, slightly sweet and grassy. Overall, it’s a nice tea at a good price.
