It's O-Cha.com's pleasure to be able to provide you with the Tsuen blend "Otsuusan" karigane sencha, from Japan's oldest tea shop. This is probably the most popular green tea in the Tsuen tea shop in Uji Japan. A proprietary blend Yabukita breed karigane sencha. The stems from gyokuro leaves are added, giving this tea somewhat of a unique "tart", sharp taste.  A bit sweeter and more green than Tsuen's similar Musashi version. Try it today!

Package includes 100 grams.

Very happy with purchase.

Great taste. Nice balance, wonderfully refreshing. This is not a deeply complex and challenging taste experience but rather a solid reliable daily sencha.

Advantages: Tastes great.

Disadvantages: What's there not to love?

My favorite tea from O-Cha!! It is simply delicious with great umami, body, and smoothness. I am picking up some more with the sale! This is going to be my daily tea as soon as I finish up some other teas I have open.

Advantages: Good value, high quality, delicious taste.

Disadvantages: Not available on the regular delivery option.

I absolutely love this tea. Is brothiness is not like a normal fukamushi. This one has strong seafood aromas and is almost salty on the tongue. EASY to brew at a range of temps and times. Great price. Doesn't seem as stimulating which can be really nice. Very soothing on the digestive tract.

Ordered this tea having visited Uji recently. It is an intruiging 'brew' and may well become my everyday cha. I get three infusions from the pot, each with differing qualities, but all worth rewarding.

This is a very pleasant tea, worth the price, I was surprised by the quality of it! If you´re looking for a good quality tea for everyday drinking at a lower price, this might be the tea you´re looking for! :)
I will definitely order it again.
