Reading all these posts about matcha really makes me want some! The closest thing I have at the office is this bagged, minced green tea. When I say minced, I mean shredded into itty bitty tiny dust particles. And yes, that means they escape from the fine mesh of the bag. Still, it’s green tea (or close enough to it) so I can’t complain.

I used the tap at work, which says the water is about 200°F. I then let the cup sit for a little while before adding the bag, so I can’t say for sure what temperature the water was. Definitely not hot enough to scorch the leaf particles. After a three minute steep, I removed the bag and took a sip.

Just as I remember, it’s vaguely grassy swampwater. Not terribly sophisticated but could be worse. I gulped it down and promptly re-steeped the bag. Sometimes all you need is tea! And now I’m a couple minutes closer to the end of the work day. :)

I tried this sample tea bag today.
I would say it is a decent sencha for a tea bag, falls in the average range, but wasn’t exceptional. It wasn’t a particularly strong flavor, and wasn’t eye opening like the first tea bag samples I tried from Den’s Tea; however, it did leave a very delicious, sweet aftertaste in the mouth.
I’d still go for their gyokuro tea bag if I was wanting to get something convenient and cheaper than loose leaf.

Oops, walked away and it oversteeped. Darn.
