    ITO EN green tea available at Asian store or Target in different cities in the US, or if not at amazon.com. Not available at Walmart

    Well maybe by coincidence, someone has written a hub about it?

    This is a matter of personal taste. I like matcha some people may dislike it.

    For Japanese green tea I like Shen Cha.  It's picked in early spring and has a fresh grassy taste.  Very light and flavorful.  Red and Green Company sells it.  RNGCO.com

    I enjoy the strong taste of Sencha.

      I don't see Shen Cha as strong.  But maybe that's  because I'm comparing it to Chinese greens which have a much stronger flavor.  I've been told they grow and use stronger teas to hold up to the strong flavors of Chinese foods whereas Japanese foods are lighter.

        Sencha has a stronger taste than most other Japanese teas. I've been using it for years now. Sencha actually means 'roasted tea', even if it is not actually roasted in the way Chinese teas are.
        I've never encountered 'Shen Cha'; perhaps that's something different altogether.

          What are some of the milder Japanese greens?  Shen Cha is the only one I've found in stores put out by the Red & Green Company.  RNGCO.com  Could be just their name for sencha or maybe another dialect.
