SENCHA Green Tea Bar – Delicate Pear

Rating: ★★★★★½☆☆☆☆

Delicate Pear BarWith me, green tea is always a hit-or-miss thing. It can either be executed really well or not so much. This bar touts that it’s worth “3 cups of Green Tea”. Drink the tea instead.

It alternated between sickingly sweet and too strong of a green tea taste. It has the consistency of a CLIF bar (if you’ve tried those), which is kind of mushy and syrupy smelling. It’s, uh.. 78% organic? I don’t think you should put un-impressive statistics on your wrapping, but I don’t own a company so I’m not an expert.

This one has 220 calories, 8 grams of fat (1.5+g of which are saturated), and 12 sugar.

Strangely enough, the first ingredient is organic pumpkin seeds, and green tea doesn’t appear until number 12 on the ingredients list. I will not re-purchase this bar, but I’m glad that I tried it to satiate my curiosity.
