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.

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

Beautiful color, and nice balance between rice and tea flavor. Bigger bag than I expected, too.

With similar responses to those before, I found the spring shincha 'Kirameki' to be a very high quality, and with the release of the 'Ujibashi San no Ma', the quality continues. The taste is refreshing, elegant and sweet, not at all bitter.
