Den's Tea has some good "Organic" sencha for about 11USD per 54g. It has scents of grass, but the liquor is quite savory.

Getting into sencha is pretty similar to getting in to drugs, both very tempting and addictive, but sencha is healthy, drugs ain`t.
I remember when I got my first kyusu from hibiki-an, it was that black tokoname that they still sell, I felt like I had found a treasure, eversince that day I am drinking tea, not only sencha, all kinds of tea.

Yes exactly my case.... and luckily Eisai, a 12th century Japanese monk, was a leader in proclaiming the health benefits of tea "the heart is the primary organ of the body, and tea is the heart’s medicine. Everyone should drink tea for a more healthy life."
