ISO Matcha Green tea and Sencha Green tea

Looking for good quality Matcha Green tea and Sencha Green tea.
I picked up Match green tea from teavana but at 35 bucks for 80 grams its too costly.In any case would like to know the options regardless of price range.

  1. Heisei Mart in J-Town? Sencha shouldn't be that hard to find. Sanko on QueenW would be worth a visit.

        They keep the matcha behind the counter at sanko, so you have to ask for it.

      2. Heisei in J-town sells it quite cheap... but it's the boxed kind, but imported from Japan... about $2+ for a box of 12 or so?

        1. The cheaper stuff isn't any good. Try DoMatcha at the health food stores, that's the good stuff. Around $25 for the 30g ceremonial grade, but considering that lasts you two months (sixty servings), it's not all that pricey.

          1. Try Costco Kirkland brand Green Tea. It's produced by Ito-En and good quality. The tea is composed of Sencha leaves mixed with ground Matcha. There are 100 bags per box, and cost about $15/box.

            1. Not sure if this place at the JCCC is still afloat:
