From the first harvest, a very specially blended sencha from Uji, near Kyoto - This tea is very aromatic and is of the highest quality. Definitely one of our all time favorites, if you enjoy a grassy, aromatic green tea then this is the tea for you. Miyabi was blended using several varieties of sencha. From the moment you open the package, that special aroma lets you know you're in for a treat. Try Miyabi today!

Available in 100gm packages.

This tea really is great quality. From the moment I opened the package the aroma was fresh and grassy. First infusion was light but still grassy. Second was even better with just 5 to 10 second infusion. Highly recomend this one.

Advantages: Fresh, grassy and high quality

Disadvantages: None

An excellent sencha... first brew at lower temps (160) for a minute or so yields a smooth, rich honey-like infusion. A short second steep at a higher temp (180) brings out the higher notes and a lavender profile. Subsequent brews are great even up to 5 with a sweet "honey water" type taste. Very unique. Very smooth.

Been ordering Uji sencha Miyabi for "years".
Aroma is awesome, especially with first brew.
It needs careful temperature however it's worth the effort. I prefer this over Gyokuro but hey
all teas from O-Cha are supreme no other
Green tea comes close. Thank you Kevin!

A fine sencha. Very nice aroma and a subtle but complex flavor that improves on the second steeping.

Advantages: Can brew many cups on a smallish amount.

Disadvantages: Can be difficult to get it just right. I failed horribly on my first two attempts to brew.

I've tried a number of green teas, including the more expensive ones, but I always come back to Miyabi. Great flavour and aroma. When brewed correctly it has a sweet but astringent taste and a pleasant grassy aroma. If brewed too long or at too high a temperature it turns bitter rather than astringent and the sweetness is lost.

One measure lasts all day for me, although the first four infusions (five cups) are the best.

Advantages: Taste and aroma.

Disadvantages: Picky about brewing time and temperature. Use and adjustable thermo pot for best results.
