I like matcha very much among teas. The feeling is relieved to the rich aroma and taste. Because it is fine powdered green tea, it is very easy to use and you can enjoy warm green tea or cold green tea. Recommended for making matcha latte too. Smile Tea has the kind of safe and high quality organic tea grown in Kagoshima where the mild climate but it is a volcanic region with mineral-rich, fertile soils.
Thank you very much for the great review in detail. Matcha is a kind of fine powdered green tea, and it's called as a superfood, so that we can absorb the nutrition easily. And yes, Kagoshima is located at the most southern place in Kyusyu, Japan. And is surrounding by active and dormant volcanoes, so our teas are planted in the mild climate and fertile soils. Those factors made our tea grow healthy and delicious. :) Thank you again for the review and the recommendation of making matcha. I also like to make matcha latte by using our SMILE TEA matcha at home too!!
It is an excellent tea, the best anywhere!
Excellent. Delicious high quality award winning kabusecha (2 weeks shaded) sencha. Rich umami notes, very smooth with no bitterness. Awesome opportunity. Thank You AAS

After trying a couple of different drinkable Japanese Sencha teas on Amazon, this simply packaged Smile Tea (Kagoshima Sencha) surprised me with nice leaf quality, rich aroma and a flavorful umami cup, especially with the first infusion. This tea is a keeper, without having to search pricier alternatives.
Paul, thank you so much for the review. We are so glad that you like our tea, and gave us such a high reputation. We are looking forward to your next visiting. :)
I bought Organic Sencha and Matcha. This is the “Smile ; ) Tea”. If you drink it, your smile will overflow. When you serve tea to guests, they always say that it is a delicious tea with a "smiley face". The reason is that the fragrance of fresh tea leaves drifts from the moment the tea package is opened, and when brewed, it dances with a great aroma and bright green color. This tea is easy to drink without astringency. Smile Tea has the kind of safe and high quality organic tea grown in Kagoshima where the mild climate but it is a volcanic region with mineral-rich, fertile soils.
Thank you for the awesome review. We are so glad that you and your guests like our tea. It's our pleasure to make you smile :) We have our reliable and long term contract organic tea farms , so that people can savour our teas happily and safely!
