It's our pleasure to be able to offer the outstanding Uji Sencha "Ujibashi San no Ma" (released under the name Kirameki when offered as shincha in the spring). From Japan's oldest teashop, Tsuen Tea, operating continuously from the same location on the banks of the Uji river for over 852+ years. This item uses select 100% Uji grown, Yabukita leaves from the first harvest and is lightly steamed sencha (asamushi). It yields a very wonderful nice grassy aroma and is a very classy green tea. Here is your chance to try some of the best of what Japan has to offer in Japanese green tea.

Available in 100 gram packages.

A lovely green tea, when I opened the packet the aroma was intense, really nice. I found it took me a few goes to get the temperature and quantity of leaves correct however, when I did... it was well well worth the effort!

Advantages: lovely green tea, the aroma smells divine, very fresh leaves.

Disadvantages: trying to find the balance between leaves and water temperature to find the right taste for me.

This tea tastes crisp, clean and refreshing.
It has a slight floral taste in the background.
A satisfying thirst quenching affect.
The color of this tea is yellow without the powdered dust in the bottom of the cup.
Ujibashi San No Ma totally lacks the soupy vegetal taste like the powdered tea leaves from Chiran and Yukata Midori.
This tea is my favorite from O-cha.com a true gem.

With thermometer and digital scale, the taste of the tea is not that I expect. Not to mention that the instruction on the web and on the package are different.

The taste is mild, the aroma is weak.
Very clear yellowish green color.

Advantages: low bad flavor

Disadvantages: weak taste and aroma
