Kagoshima Organic Sencha "Kurasawa" - It's Back for 2014!  Grown organically in Kirishima Kagoshima, this organic medium steamed sencha green tea has a rather intense green-yellow color to it and carries a a nice grassy aroma. Unique to this sencha is it's high catechin levels - this green tea has approximately 1.5 to 2 times higher levels of catechins than regular sencha! For this reason it is also packs a very astringent punch to it so brew with care at lower tempertures. If you are looking for maximum green tea health benefits and high levels of catechins, this is your tea! If brewed with care it is very delicious and flavorable, we are confident you will enjoy this product. As with all of our loose leaf green teas, packaged in nitrogen flushed packaging.

Price shown includes 100 grams of tea per package!

This one was in my fridge since I purchased it as shincha. I was surprised how the intact the leaves were, and their deep green color, after I poured my first and second steeps. While higher temps will bring out more astringency, if brewed at slightly lower temps kurasawa offers very elegant, deep, and mellow flavors. It was a nice change from the zairai (base species) sencha I tend to drink. EXCELLENT DEAL.

Advantages: brewing flexibility
attractive leaves
complexity and subtly in flavor profile
inexpensive

Disadvantages: none.

I choose this kind of sencha for medical reasons. When i looked what sencha to chose, i found that this particular sencha has more cachetins than the other.s I believe it is true and will help me to fight with my health problem. I brew it as recommended...if i brew more time it is certainly getting bitter, which means i got max catechins which is my goal.

Advantages: I should add that O- cha prises are affordable, much better than the other sites i checked.

Just a good tea. Nice grassy flavor, enjoyable. I brewed it at 1g/oz, and only steeped for 45 seconds the first steep as this tea is strong yet rewarding.

Brewed as instructed, this is a delicious and refershing tea. Milder than most chumushi-s, it also has a subtle "sharp" note from the increased catechins.
