This one is pretty nice for the price, the aroma is strong with notes of fresh grass and sweet veggies. It has a wonderful smell when opened that entices the senses.
The brew is dense for a chumushi and the mouth feel is rich and full bodied. As mentioned by another reviewer, chiran sencha has a nice balance of green vegetable, spring grass and floral flavors. Almost no astringency to speak of when brewed at 165 for 40 seconds and 10 seconds on the second infusion. Use caution at higher temps because I believe it could get too bold quickly.
Overall a very nice tea for the price point, though I still love my miyabi as my favorite! I will buy this again.

LOVE this tea! Beautiful green color, amazing aroma, perfect balance of grass/spinach (without being overpowering). And a great price for everyday drinking. LOVE love love!

I bought 3 of Ocha's excellent senchas, but this Chiran Sencha was a clear standout for me with its distinctive flavor! It has the same green umami taste of sencha with a rich hint of a floral, honeyed- toastiness. The sparkling emerald cup it produces from the small, thin dark green leaves is most inviting. This is a favorite to enjoy again and again and not tire of. Definitely a tea to put on your want list!
Wow, what a great tea. It has a very distinct taste, a nice color and a really fresh smell, I love it!
I am a fan of the light but distinctive taste. An excellent introduction to sencha.
