From the first harvest, a very special sencha from Kagoshima prefecture located at the southern tip of Japan. Undoubtedly one of our most most popular green teas, this item is definitely a favorite with green tea connoisseurs. Yutaka Midori is an exceptionally "green" green tea. We urge you to compare this sencha against any of the others available on the internet for it's nice emerald green color, wonderful aroma, and excellent taste. Try some today!

Available in 100 gram packages.

I love this Sencha tea. It was so fresh when it came out of the package that the leaves were still soft to the spoon. Most tea will make a little rustle noise or be a little dry, not this, it was still moist and fresh and green.

My first 32 ounce kettle that I steeped of this was super. It was a green color with a good flavor and good thickness. The sencha was very energizing yet mild enough that I could drink it all day.

My second steep was a mix color of green and yellow. Still good and to be honest this tea's second steep is as good as most lesser tea's first steep!

I have done a third and fourth steep before, but those definitely begin to lose the character that makes these tea so wonderful.

So in short, I think this is the best Sencha I have tried, however I have only tried two from O-cha and about two dozen from local stores, three from local tea shops.

Kagashima Sencha is definitely a class above all of them though and I would say if you like green tea I doubt you would be disappointed in this tea.

5* My favorite. Rich, very green and sweet. Second infusion has different profile, but every bit as satisfying as the first.

very good. I have never purchased green tea from any store, even high end, that compares to the products I have tried from this sight. even the less expensive tea bags surpassed other products.

Fantastic tea, one of the best Japanese green teas (for my taste). Very intense, with strong grassy, floral/fruity and umami notes. Thick, cloudy, vibrant green liquid (fukamushi style). For first steep, I usually use 5 grams of tea in 60 deg C water for 40 seconds. 20 - 25 seconds for the second steep, 45 - 50 for third.

Advantages: Intense flavours, incredible green colour, makes my whole body feel invigorated

Disadvantages: None really... I guess it could be a little cheaper :)
