From Tea Forte

This steamed, organic green tea steeps a pale and delicate liquor. A hint of roasted chestnuts complements the freshness of a spring downpour.

Ahhh….civilization! After 24 hours of radio silence, the hospital where my mom’s having tests has wifi. Funny what small comforts we get dependent on.

This nice little pyramid-bagged sencha is one of those small comforts. It’s not one of those greens that has a temperature sweet spot of less than a quarter degree. Makes a nice, very lightly vegetal cup even with microwave water that isn’t from home.


hope your Mom is doing well


Prayers for your mother.


all the best for your mom gmathis

Thanks, friends. Geriatric nursing is hard for me; as is being the grownup. Neither mercy nor service are my spiritual gifts :) But if you ever want to know have to make a killer flying kite out of a bamboo BBQ skewer and a piece of copy paper, I got that covered!


I just read a review of yours from a year ago dealing with family health issues. Peace to you and yours.

This is a very good Sencha. No bitterness and a nice nutty flavor. It’s pleasantly rich and smooth. Not at all grassy.

This is not bad but it isn’t like sencha at all!!! It tastes neither grassy nor roasted… instead, it’s sweet like honey and I think it has a hint of coconut??? I believe the foreign flavour has something to do with Tea Forte’s tea packaging – it’s pretty, but it really makes the tea bags prone to contamination (especially in a sample box, where there are teas of various flavours)! :(

The first time I made this, I steeped for 3 minutes. Ugh. It came out astringent and thoroughly unpleasant. I didn’t even want to drink it again, but I needed the sipdown. So I brewed up some fresh leaf (which includes stems and fannings as well as leaf, not cool) at 180 F for about 1 minute. Big improvement! No astringency or bitterness. Light and vegetal. Two solid steeps. Rather mediocre though. A year ago, I thought Tea Forte was the best out there. Now that I’ve really gotten into tea, I find myself less impressed. Oh, well. Sipdown!

A mild Sencha – very springy – very pretty

Twigs and dust in the loose leaf version…. But nice nutty flavor.

Color: faint neon green
Initial aroma strength: delicate/underwhelming
Body: light but not too light. low bitterness, generally smooth finish.
Aroma: grassy (not necessarily fresh cut but fresher than hay; similar to the smell that you get when you cut your lawn in the morning and come back in the afternoon on a fairly dry day), a faint hint of pine needle and earth.
A lot of tiny sediments.
Overall well balanced.

Flavors: Cut Grass, Earth, Pine

This review is for the loose leaf version
2 tsp leaf, 500 mL cold water, 5 minutes

This is very green, but also enjoyable iced. It smells and tastes like freshly cut grass with an undertone of tropical fruit and nuts. I wouldn’t say there is seaweed there, but something vaguely marine. It is not astringent or bitter at all, and is quite flavourful despite steeping very pale yellow. I mean, it tastes like what you expect a good sencha to taste like. It tastes like how it looks – deep chlorophyll-rich green.

I am not a huge green person (I tend to not enjoy vegetal blends as much), but this is a good example of high quality sencha that has been stored in a way that preserves all or its freshness.

Standard green tea. Pretty good, but nothing exceptional.

I drink this tea pretty much every morning! It’s got a beautiful green color and isn’t too strong. I brew it loose leaf in a pot and it goes nicely with breakfast or on its own. Very happy I bought it! I tend to just leave the leaves in the teapot and let it steep for ages, and even then it’s not overpowering, which is great. But maybe that’s not a proper way to do things. :)
