Stumbled across this site while looking for a Japanese-made chawan and discovered that all their products were made in Japan so I replaced every one of my Chinese-made pieces. My package arrived today to my amazement, as I did not expect it to travel halfway around the world in less than a week. Everything is so much more beautiful than I had imagined.
I have been a customer of O-Cha for about two years and this is the only place where I buy green tea now. It is the best green tea you can ever purchase online. Forget finding this quality in any shop in Europe. The freshness of O-Cha teas is unmatched unless you are in Japan, I guess. The service is fast and reliable. If you like green tea, this is the place to buy it online.
I fell in love with japanese green tea after a trip to Japan two years ago, but it is almost impossible to find good and fresh green tea where I live. Luckly I found out about O-Cha so now I can enjoy great quality tea at a very fair price. The service is very fast and the shipping rates to my country are affordable. I have already ordered three times and will keep on doing so.
I have been ordering from O-Cha for several years. I usually place my order using PayPal before going to bed and wake in the morning to find that my order has already shipped! My package often arrives in one week, but on a few occasions can take ten days to two weeks--my guess is that that is on the USPS or customs. Early on I ordered the green tea gift set (recommended) and have been refilling the canisters with my purchases ever since.
Cada amanecer, un ritual. Elaborar matcha diariamente por la mañana se a convertido para mí en un ritual que se traduce en gracias al Creador. Solo un matcha de la más alta calidad como es "Uji Matcha Taiko-San" ha podido llevarme a este estado de comunión. En ocasiones, cuando en mi mente hay turbulencia, preparar matcha delgado (usucha) no es suficiente. Entonces elaboro matcha grueso (koicha) y mi mente retorna al sosiego que me permite ver las cosas con claridad y tomar mejores decisiones. "Uji Matcha Taiko-San" es un producto caro. Sí. Pero cada centavo pagado por este producto vale muy bien la pena. Soy consumidor de todo tipo de té. Pero, hablando de té, definitivamente "Uji Matcha Taiko-San" es lo mejor que he probado en mi vida. Pregunta para O-Cha: ¿Encontrarán algún día un matcha superior a "Uji Matcha Taiko-San"?... Sería muy interesante y un gran reto... atte Antonio [ English - Every dawn, a ritual. Making matcha daily in the morning has become for me a ritual that translates into thanks to the Creator.

The customer service is amazing. If you make a mistake on an order, as long as you promptly let them know, they fix it for you no questions asked. Whoever Kevin Moore is, he fixes my problems fast. Buy the Yame Gyokuro. It's the best value!
Después de probar Matcha de diversas calidades y de diferentes marcas, llegué aquí buscando Matcha de calidad suprema. Manten y, sobretodo, Taiko-San superaron con creces todo lo que yo había degustado anteriormente. Últimamente he degustado Gyokuro Yume no Ukihashi y Kirameki Uji Shincha. Sencillamente son "Celestiales". Y vamos, por hablar del servicio, despacho de mercancías, tiempo que tarda el envío... la calificación que otorgo para estos rubros: A+++ Quise hablar en un párrafo aparte acerca del servicio al cliente: En ninguna otra tienda en línea había yo recibido un servicio al cliente tan excelente y rápido como el que ofrece O-Cha. Por todo lo anterior quiero felicitarlos y presentar mi admiración. En horabuena. Saludos desde México Antonio
Quality, fast delivery and affordable prices. Keep up the good work.
I was always on the lookout for a quality Japanese green tea, it's difficult to find anything other than sweepings or mislabeled Chinese teas in local stores, and always at an expensive cost. That is why I'm so glad that I discovered O-Cha! Every tea that I have ordered from them has been of the highest quality, at prices much more reasonable than any retail outlet. I'm now able to enjoy delicious Kabesucha every day, and Gyokuro for more than a once-in-a-while treat. I'm always excited to try something new from the catalog, because I know that it will have been sourced as well as humanly possible. Thank you O-Cha, here's to many more years of great tea enjoyment!
Wow, I am always excited to get my shipment from O-Cha. I am trying to make sure I try every Gyokuro available from O-Cha. I just recieved Kamejirushi Uji, and Shoun Uji WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! Such great flavor!!!!
I have ordered from O-cha for years and have always been impressed with their fast shipping and responsive help with questions, but most of all the quality and value of their teas. One of my orders was even returned to them due to an error with the carrier (we were moving) and they contacted me directly to get the teas sent to me asap. Thanks again O-cha!
I just recently began experiencing the grand green teas Japan has to offer. Through O-cha, I've been thoroughly impressed with the varieties from their offerings. Mainly, sencha, gyokuro and the marvelous matchas. They're a delightful and uplifting experience. My now trusted source for green teas and , even, wonderful accessories to accommodate with the brewing and making of these marvelous teas. Thank you O-cha.
I think my favorite of all the teas is the Organic Kamari Tamaryokucha. I like it especially in the morning, and the pan roasted flavor is delightful! O-Cha gives wonderful service, and I only use the Organic teas. They have a nice selection in all price ranges.
I love your teas, and you have a great selection. I am enjoying the Organic Chiran Sencha very much. I like the strong flavor, especially in the morning.
Just received my teapot and water cooler, both of which arrived in perfect order, and carefully packed. Lovely to see such acre and attention taken to my order. I will now have to learn Japanese so that I can read the newspaper used for packing :-) Thank you so much
I recently had the pleasure of trying O-Cha's organic Sakimidori Sencha, and I was swept away by the intense yet subdued flavors. The Sakimidori sencha was easily one of the best senchas I've tried in a while, and one that I could see myself drinking regularly on early, brisk mornings. Something I've found, is that that opening a tea from O-Cha is a unique experience, quite unlike that of any other company, as the aroma and freshness of the tea prevails so heavily that one might think their tea had been packaged only minutes before they opened it.
I am from Texas and I have used Uji Asamushi Shincha Kirameki tea for several years and other teas from O-Cha. All of the teas are very good and the flavor is renowned. I drink green tea 3 – 4 times a week and love it. I have purchase green tea in the USA, but there is no comparison to the teas from O-Cha place of business. O-Cha teas for me are the BEST tea on the market. It is a little expensive, but if you want the best, you will have to pay for it. IT IS THE BEST TEA. Thank you and have a great day.
I purchased Organic Sencha Oku Midori for the first time, and I really like it. I love the fact that it's organic, and the taste is wonderful. I finish my cup by eating the leaves at the bottom, and they are delicious (of course I like that kind of thing). So instead of brewing several cups and throwing away the leaves, I want all the goodness and eat the leaves at the end - no waste of good phytochemicals!
When I first started drinking Matcha it was because of the health benefits. I ordered from all different sites and one day stumbled upon O-Cha. Since then I have begun not only drinking Matcha for health reasons but now have found a true passion for this style of tea thanks to the quality of tea I have received time and time again from O-Cha. This is the only site I order from now because they deliver the highest quality, best tasting Matcha available anywhere. Living in New Jersey it is also nice to trust a site to deliver a high quality product continually without issues overseas. Hats off to a company that not only delivers the best quality but also maintains excellent customer service. Thanks for everything!! You have a loyal customer here.
I recently ordered the Uji Gyokuro Kamejirushi and love it! I have been drinking a sencha every day but wanted to add a higher quality tea to drink occasionally like on weekends or special occasions. Service was prompt too! Thank you. David Guthrie AllAboutSushiGuide
I purchased the Arita teapot for my daughter's Christmas. The teapot is very beautiful and my daughter loves it! The delivery to Scotland was exceptionally fast and it all arrived very well packaged. Overall I am extremely pleased with the service I received and my purchase. I would definitely recommend purchasing from this company, and may do so again myself. Thank you!
Kevin at O-Cha has been incredibly kind and helpful and we have enjoyed using the fantastic products on offer here!
Bought the Yakishimei Houhin teapot set. The set itself is stunning, and the service has been excellent - the water cooler cracked on its way to the UK, and we were quickly sent a replacement. Thank you!
I made my first purchase with O-Cha with Uji Matcha Kiku Mukashi. I'm new with Matcha and enjoyed this delicate, crisp tasting selection. I liked smelling the freshness every time I took a scoop. My only con is the time it took to get my product. But in having to be reasonable in considering the product is fresh from Japan, I am very satisfied with the product and service.
I would like to say that the tea from O-Cha.com is the BEST. I have purchased green tea from other sources and none have come to the quality of O-Cha.com. Last year I canceled an order for the reason of the Power Plant. But now I believe that this product is SAFE from reading articles concerning the tea products. Again Thank you for your prompt service and product.
