It's our pleasure to be able to offer the outstanding Uji Sencha "Aoi", ("Green") from Japan's oldest teashop, Tsuen Tea. This item consists of yabukita leaves from the first harvest and is Tsuen's second highest ranked sencha, the first being their San no Ma. This lightly steamed sencha (asamushi) yields a very wonderful nice grassy aroma. Here is your chance to try some of the best of what Japan has to offer in Japanese green tea, directly from the banks of the Uji river.

This is a good quality sencha with flavor that meets expectations when purchasing in Japan. Although not my favorite of o-cha.com teas, it is noticeably fresher and better quality than what you'll find at your local "Japanese grocery"- no question.


Advantages: Flavor is consistent with teas one purchases at markets/tea shops in Japan= thank you!

Disadvantages: This tea requires a relatively good amount of product to yield a few cups of strong brew. In other words, you'll use a lot of this product if you enjoy strongly brewed tea.

I ordered quite a lot of this in the 2013 shincha form, and it was a fabulous asamushi. I tended to brew the first infusion a bit hot, since otherwise it can go a bit floral, and I don't like floral.

Advantages: Very lovely profile if you like a delicate asamushi and take some trouble to find the optimal brewing parameters for the flavor you want.

Disadvantages: It takes more leaf than a fukamushi and it is a more expensive sencha.

Apparently it was my first order from that site, and I love that tea. It took severalt attempts to do brew it right. It has little grassy taste, with oily aftertaste.

This asamushi sencha does not worth its price according to me. No aftertaste, poor flavours, I'm very disappointed.

I have purchased this tea and the Kagoshima Sencha Sae Midori, and must say this is the better one by far. The tea taste is smooth and gentle, without an overpowering flavor. The astringency is less than the KSSM even though this was given a medium and the KSSM a mild (these should be switched). This tea is worth the extra price even though it requires an extra .2g per 1oz. The wife and co-workers all agree that this is a more enjoyable tea. Can't wait to try the Uji Asamushi Sencha Ujibashi San no Ma (Kirameki). Thank you O-Cha.
