Sorry, I thought I replied to this back then. Clever word play!
And it is likely true. I will generally stick with the real deal! Though I have wanted to try the one selection TeaSpring offers occasionally from China ... at least they are not calling it sencha nor hiding the origin of the selection.
You really have to do some serious investigating to figure out the Yamamotoyama selection is Brazilian. I detest this method of marketing. If it is Brazilian, why not include that right in the actual product description? Why try to hide the fact or sell it with a clever "sencha" disguise?
