It's O-Cha.com's pleasure to be able to provide you with the Tsuen blend "Musashi", from Japan's oldest teashop, in a 140 gram package! A proprietary blend Yabukita breed karigane sencha,the stems from gyokuro leaves are added, giving this tea a rather strong astringency with somewhat of a "tart", sharp taste. Very similar to Tsuen's Otsuusan, Musashi is less sweet with a bit more astringency for those who like a stronger tasting green tea. Try it today!

Very enjoyable; sweet and interesting savory notes from the gyokuro stem. Definitely not too astringent or overpowering by any means

Advantages: Very reasonably priced, brews very easily and consistently

Disadvantages: It's not free! ;)

So far I've found this tea to be just a little thin in flavor. But its kind of roasty aroma is pleasant. Not that this is a roasted tea - I'm just describing. I like this tea but I much prefer the Uji Sencha Otsuusan. These two are supposedly similar though I found them to be very different. This is a nice tea. Not my preference but I think others will like it a lot.

This was my very first Green Tea experience, the flavor is outstanding and the more you work with it the more the flavor keeps coming. A little strong at first when your not use to REAL Green tea, but very enjoyable and full of flavor.

Advantages: Thanks O-Cha.com for helping me get started into the world of Green Tea. Your customer service and great products make it like I have a Green Tea shop right here in my own town.

Disadvantages: None Found

This tea tastes and smells great. Using exactly 0.6g per 1 ounce of water it comes out excellent and has not turned bitter or otherwise gone wrong. I also like it better than the otsuan sencha i used to drink from ocha, it's even more flavorful. Great buy!!!

Package is 140 grams, an excellent value for the price. A nice companion tea to Otsuu-san -- I love to alternate between the two. Surprisingly different from Otsuu-san, considering both teas are karigane sencha from the same producer. A nice strong, refreshing sencha -- worth trying if you are looking for something different from a reliable source.
