Excellent service and wonderful product. Highly recommend Virtue Tea for their quality products.
I've tried multiple kind of tea when I jump out of bed... the Sencha Nagashima is the only one that I really like to start my day. I really like the flavors and it fits perfectly with my home made granola!
Once I decided to steep the tea as directed, I found it to be what true green tea should taste like! Perfect flavour!
I bought three of the Green Teas from virtue and they are all very good. This one is quite different from the rest. I find the taste similar to Matcha in a lot of ways. Highly recommended.
Indeed, the Nagashima is more vegetable like which we find in quality Japanese tea. One of my personal favorites! Thanks Forrest. - Alex
Absolutely fantastic. It's clear how meticulously produced and roasted this tea is. Usually I do a rinse of any green tea to flush the bitters, but the rinse of this tea was delicious on its own :) I've been able to produce 3 tasty steeps from this sencha, each a bit distinct, at approx. 70 degC 30sec, 80 degC 1min, 90 degC 2min. It is VERY easy to oversteep, and I recommend a large amount of tea about 1 Tbsp per cup, to yield the above steeps. Rich, fruity and chocolate. The lime green colour is absolutely stunning. Will definitely be ordering more and likely making this a staple!
I totally agree, this tea is a little tricky to gauge at first but when the infusion has been fine tuned, it's absolutely amazing!
