My first brew of this tea, I was very disappointed. It was quite bitter.
I made it again, more careful to use cooler water. I don't have a formal yuzamashi, but I used 175 degree water from my zojirushi to an empty tea pot, then poured the water into my sencha pot.
I brewed right at 45 seconds, and the result was incredible. A delicate and grassy tea with not even a hint of bitterness.
I highly recommend this tea, but adjust your brewing accordingly.

Very pleasant grassy flavor. This is the first tea I've purchased from o-cha but it won't be the last!! I love this tea and will definitely be buying it again. It made it to Texas in 6 days!

I love the deep grassy taste of this tea. I get this tea frequently and I am never disappointed in the morning when I have my first cup of tea.

Has a very rich emerald color, and is great for up to 3 resteeps.

My favourite daily tea at the moment! Love the dark, grassiness of this one. Very green, very drinkable.

I filtered the first infusion which gave a more yellow colour. For the second infusion I did not filter it and it came out much more green. If you want the rich green colour, I would avoid using a very fine mesh filter.
The taste was like buttered asparagus and rice crackers. There is a slight bitterness and astringency that tickles the mouth without leaving it feeling too dry. There is a slight herbaceous and gently-bitter minty aftertaste.
It was good for about 4 infusions.

Delicious, a bit tangy, and rich beautiful color. I love this tea.

An excellent deep-steamed tea, worth the price, and it's almost impossible to get a tea like it in the U.S.
FWIW, to any considering buying from this site for the first time, I've never had any problems with the cheaper shipping options, despite the lack of tracking.
