Interestingly, the Rishi Sencha Sticks yield a better-tasting tea than the loose leaf Rishi Sencha's I have tried...
In general, the best loose-leaf Sencha supplier I have found by far is Ito En....
And thanks so much for the links, I will post them for anyone interested. These look super-cool for anyone needing tea on a lunch break or any other situation in which there is little time or no tea equipment:

**EDIT: O-Cha's powdered Sencha arrived today. It is cost effective, 11US for 100 grams, and decent, but not quite as tasty as the Rishi packets, which are 8US for 10 grams individually sealed, however. O-Cha is a superb supplier in general, so far, but I might try the Den's powdered sencha next...**
