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.
