This was my favorite tea, of three from here I tried..

But in fairness was about equal, although very different from the expensive gyokuro ($58).

I did not feel that this tea is extra sensitive to steeping too long (as someone said).. But I am steeping at 170F.. I am just now having the last hit from this bag..

For comparison purposes, Im used to fine senchas (similar to fukamushi).

I tried the shincha first time (version of fukamushi).. Found it too harsh for my sensitive stomach (letting it age a bit.. hopefully since I let air in, it will still me OK).. I believe tea is hard on stomachs in general (if you are sensitive), but this tea seemed less so..

Advantages: Low to mid priced, yet amazing tea IMHO.

This is definitely a great tasting tea. I was previously hooked on gyokuro from Teavana, but realized their teas weren't all that. I've never tried sencha, so trying this was the best thing I've done. I'm officially in love with this tea now! :) Thanks O-cha!

Advantages: Clean, smooth, vegetal flavor, very nice aroma

Disadvantages: None
