    A very high quality tea. It has a light but flavorful taste and is definitely worth a try.

    This is one of my favorite teas. It is wonderful for sipping by itself. It tastes excellent at a variety of temperatures and strengths (I mean amount of tea to water) , as long as you don't go too hot or too long brewing time. Worth experimenting to find how you like it best.

    Everything you could want from asamushi sencha. If breewed at 180(temp in Kyusuq, not kettle) astringent but balanced flavor. Brewed at lower temperatures,170, more mild subtle taste, like gyokuro.

    This is a great tea, very clean and warm. Be sure not to "overcook" it with water too hot or too long a steep.

    From the minute I opened the packet I knew I was in for a treat. A wonderful fresh grassy aroma. The leaf a beautiful deep green colour. When brewed, the first infusion was a nice mix of grassy and savoury, further infusions produced similar tastes, but with slight floral undertones. All in all a really beautiful tea, well worth the price. I will certainly order more.

    Very thirst quenching. A delightful tea

    A lovely green tea, when I opened the packet the aroma was intense, really nice. I found it took me a few goes to get the temperature and quantity of leaves correct however, when I did... it was well well worth the effort!

    This tea tastes crisp, clean and refreshing.
    It has a slight floral taste in the background.
    A satisfying thirst quenching affect.
    The color of this tea is yellow without the powdered dust in the bottom of the cup.
    Ujibashi San No Ma totally lacks the soupy vegetal taste like the powdered tea leaves from Chiran and Yukata Midori.
    This tea is my favorite from O-cha.com a true gem.
