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.

Very good asamushi sencha :)
Pleasant taste, light, sweet and gentle. It is not too fragrant, but smells greenishly fresh. Great long sweet aftertaste. I think it is one of my favorites.

He-he, I bought mogake teapot in this store, and it is perfect match to that tea: always fresh good one cup of excellent tea. Love it.

Advantages: Great taste, easy to brew.

Disadvantages: For me it is a bit costly, but it is OK :)

This is by far my favorite. It can be too astrigent if brewed to long or too hot but otherwise is very nicely grassy hinted with sea-broth. I brew it hot at 170 or 172 F for the first one infusion but not for very long - 45 sec I think. It is very unique.

すばらしい!

Certainly this tea does not disappoint. It has a flavour of its own, and using what I will think of as a Canadian technique, I achieved a good taste from the first brew. Its price and quality is comparable with other senchas available more locally to me, and I have no complaints.

My parameters: 1tsp / 4 minutes, 70C 250ml.

I have not tried O-cha's suggested parameters yet.

Advantages: Unique taste
Priced correctly
Bonus points for literary name ;p
