drank Sencha by ShiZen Tea
4843 tasting notes


I love ShiZen’s teas. I really enjoyed their tea powders, those were great for on the go. I would bring them with me on days when my daughter needed me to be at her dance school pretty much all day for rehearsals and such, because I could enjoy a bottle of green tea without all the sugar of the stuff you’d buy at the convenience store.

Earlier this year, they introduced a line of loose leaf teas and I’ve also really enjoyed those. They have two different Senchas. I previously reviewed their Superior Sencha: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/06/02/organic-sencha-superior-green-tea-from-shi-zen/ and this tasting note is for their Everyday Sencha: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/07/31/organic-sencha-green-tea-from-shi-zen/

Both of these offerings are organic, and I like that. This Sencha is not quite as sweet as the Superior. It tastes a bit like young, tender, lightly buttered lima beans. A hint of savory bitterness offers some contrast for the palate. This one has become a favorite for mealtime.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
