Taste notes

We recommend Unro for sencha drinkers who prefer light bitterness and astringency, and slight sweetness. With a short aftertaste, light body, and breezy aroma, this tea’s bitterness tastes refreshing especially when served after a meal. In addition to the standard sencha brew with 176°F water, you can try brewing Unro with hotter water for 30 seconds, producing an even more refreshing, aromatic character.

Great Tea

I've been buying this tea for 5 years now since we were in Kyoto and found it. It is very light and refreshing. I'd recommend it!

Great tea

I usually buy the Nichigetsu, but decided to buy Unro since it was out of stock. I'm really glad I did, Perfect flavor, I would recommend for people who are just getting into tea, in particular if you are American. Although with ippodo you really can't go wrong.

Refreshing Sencha

I was a little bit apprehensive of trying Unro sencha based on the ranking system put forth by Ippodo. Unro is placed in the "bitter and astringent" end of the scale, well below the "balanced sencha" category. This was definitely intimidating but I decided to try it anyways because it was recommended to me. Surprisingly I found this tea to be very refreshing. It is not heavy on sweetness but it is still there, and it is not heavy on bitterness either. The astringency creates a dancing feeling on your tongue which is quite nice. Unro is a great value and is a refreshing tea which I believe is good for daily use. The scale used by Ippodo communicates that this tea has more dominate bitterness and astringency, but it may be misleading as those terms typically have a negative connotation. I recommend giving Unro a try if you have been scared to try it like me. You may be surprised!
