This is my favorite tea for everyday usage. It has a mild, neutral flavour and is slightly sweet. It has a very good price point for this level of quality. I put two teaspoons in glass jar with about 0,5 liter of water and let it cold steep over night in the fridge. It's very convenient and delicious with som fresh pressed lemon juice.

Great everyday tea. Higher quality than other senchas I have tried in this price range.

An excellent green tea from Japan. Great value for money. Highly recommended.
And as usual... packaging and shipping from O-Cha.com was just perfect.
Advantages: Packaging is excellent and preserves freshness until opened. Presentation is awesome and looks like a much expensive tea.
Nice flavors and awesome color when brewed as instructed.

I am not educated on tea and what it should/shouldn't be so I don't have a lot to say. I do know that local tea stores charge twice as much for this tea.
Advantages: I like that it is packaged and sealed for freshness. Fast shipping from Japan.

This is my first tea from O-Cha. It is an excellent sencha, bursting with seaweed/grassy flavors. I discovered the site from TeaDB on Youtube.
Bursting with seaweed/grassy flavours. The aroma is sweet, has good body, with a lengthy finish.

I am dropping a few line to let you know my thoughts about you. First, let me say, I'm pretty sure your site has it in for me. 75 percent of the time I forget my password but I'm sure the other 25 percent is not my fault. But I've been buying your tea for several years and don't plan on stopping. The first time I had green tea, my visiting Japanese college shared a gift his mother had sent to him. It was gyokuro and I'm afraid it's beauty was lost on me. I have since developed a true enjoyment of green tea but can only afford the daily sencha as a "go to" for everyday. I have tried several other tea companies here in the states to save money, but I always come back. You have no equal. I have noticed over the years that the flavor may depend on the weather and some years are better than others, but I have only one source I depend on and that's you. Your service is good (I always get helpful advice) but your great product keeps me coming back. I thought about giving you 4 stars due to my computer inadequacy but your tea deserved all 5 stars. thanks, pat volk in beautiful Kentucky.

This was my very first loose-leaf green tea. I haven't ruined a cup yet despite not using a thermometer to check the water temperature. The first and second steepings seem to have the same taste for me, somewhat grassy and sweet, with a pleasant grassy smell and a light green colour. The later steepings are more astringent, but I'm able to get 5 good steepings if I combine the 4th and 5th steepings together in a cup. All in all, a very nice intro to green tea.
Advantages: Good value
Very easy to brew
Nice intro to green tea

Good grassy smell. Typical buttery-ness that senchas sema to have, although not as much as more expensive teas. Taste is slightly grassy and at times a high sweet note that almost reminds me of citrus :) Easy to brew, 2nd infusion has been a sweeter taste for me. All in all, a very good every day cuppa. Excellent value for money and head and shoulders above typical "store teas" Happy tea drinking :)
