Enrich your life with Japan’s most traditional loose leaf green tea; sencha.
Our award-winning, signature sencha is steamed in the Fukamushi, or "deep-steamed" style characteristic of southern Shizuoka, and then finished with a high roasting; the specialty of the Sugimoto family. The high heat finishing roast brings out a rich aroma and lingering umami finish that is consistent even after multiple steepings.
Enjoy the Sugimoto family’s best-selling sencha in a resealable foil pouch that will be kept fresh for months of enjoyment.
Enrich Sencha Loose Leaf Tea from Sugimoto: A Flavorful Delight
I am very impressed with this tea, and very pleased to see it offered in a smaller portion but large enough to really get to know this tea. The aroma was a deep vegetal decent, reminiscent of steamed vegetables, with a subtle nutty undertone. The flavor profile was impressive with a balance of sweetness and umami and a distinct grassy taste that was not too overpowering. The finish was smooth with just a hint of astringency that gave it a pleasant mouthfeel and brought a nice balance to the tea.
Overall, I was impressed with this tea's complexity of flavors and quality. It's a great choice for green tea enthusiasts looking for a well-rounded taste experience.
Fantastic for price
This is some of the best green tea I've had. It's grassy, vegetal, nutty, and a hint of sweet and not bitter at all. It's also a great value.
Best of 3 I bought, this beat out the others that cost 50% more, very impressed.
Preference is subjective, I know, so I ill not name drop. But I will say this..... I have drank this variety of Japanese green tea for a very long time and have tried many different varieties. So I was on the hunt for some good and not too expensive Japanese green tea. I bought this item, and two other ones. This one was 10ish dollars, the other 2 were 16ish. Kind of expensive for the amount you get...... but interestingly, this one was far superior in concentration, taste, and value $. I only use a little bit to make a thermos. It is vividly green. I nearly always overdo it because the small amount I put seems like it would not be enough. The other varieties I was putting almost double for the same strength. All three were the same consistency as far as how much the leaves were ground (so it was not a surface area thing). So I decided today to order two more of these. Very happy with this brand. Every time I drink it I am like wow this is good green tea. I think most people that appreciate that special flavor from good Japanese green tea will be impressed with this, especially for the money. I have had almost as good for less money, but it was hard to find most of the places I have lived. And those other brands I recently had that cost 50% more just could not compete IMO.
Excellent quality. Grassy, vibrant. Also good enough for up to 4 infusions. Highly recommended.

Amazing flavor and color! Resealable bag is really nice to retain freshness.
Poor mans delicacy
Save this for a day you want to spoil yourself. It is pricey for the quality, but higher in quality. Not the best you ever had, but worth the buy. I suggest buying 4 bags to keep you set for the month if this is your only stash.
A great loose green tea for your money
This is now my go-to loose green tea. A couple of punches in my tea strainer is all it takes for a flavorful up of green tea. Great value. I switched from the big name producer of loose green tea and have found this brand to be every bit as fresh and flavorful
Tiene un sabor delicado y exquisito. Un precio excelente para la calidad que posee. Invita a una ceremonia de té, aunque no sea matcha.
Perfect! Sooooo Japanese.
I ordered this because I have not traveled to Japan since COVID and was running out of tea. Opened the new bag, spooned some leaves into the tea strainer, and added the hot water. I knew immediately that this was my salvation. The aroma coming from my cup was 100% Japanese, it was fantastic.
