Organic Kirishima Sencha - Grown organically in the mountainous Kirishima area of Kagoshima. Grown by a somewhat famous grower in the area, the quality is really supreme. Medium steamed, this sencha has an intense green color to it, medium body, and carries a rather intense, nice grassy aroma and umami taste. Very nicely balanced astringency, aroma and taste, this is probably one of the best organic sencha green teas we've ever come across. The quality of this tea got our attention and we decided to carry it for those organic green tea enthusiasts who demand the very best. Very delicious, we are confident you will enjoy this product. As with all of our loose leaf green teas, packaged in nitrogen flushed packaging.

O-Cha.com's package includes 100 grams of tea.

One of the best organic senchas I have tried. Very grassy and intense flavor.

I was delighted to receive Organic Kirishima Sencha recently. Upon opening the envelope, I was greeted with the wonderful "grassy" aroma of the tea. Brewing was easy for me and I was rewarded with a vibrant green liquor in the cup. I am not exaggerating when I say that this tea is the best I have ever tasted from Kevin. I am excited about using this for ochazuke.

Advantages: Color, flavor, and aroma.

Disadvantages: Might be difficult brewing for first timers; ensure the temperature is not near boiling. I like to take the kettle off when the first wisps of steam come out of the spout. Please use good water; preferably spring water.

Just opened this tea today and had my first few cups. I usually only steep sencha three times, with the third steep being much warmer and longer.... I was digging the first two so much that I decided to try and get 4 steeps out. I had absolutely no trouble with that. This tea is great. Very grassy. Very delicious. Organic, cheap.... what else is there to do but buy it. I know I will be again.

Delicious mid-steamed sencha.

It's pretty grassy and then it also has a nice vegetal/oceanic undertone to it.

Ever since I've opened this tea, I find myself constantly wanting to grab it and make a pot of it.

As a first time buyer at O-Cha, I'm very impressed with this tea and the service. This tea smells and tastes amazing. I love the buttery aftertaste it leaves on your tongue..
Also, being quite a fan of organic teas, I'll surely be ordering more from this site
