        A tea that is very sensitive to heat and steeping time. With my loose tea making skills I often over did it and the tea wasn't as good as it could be. When I got it right I was surprised at how amazing it was but I found it hard to get it right.

        Usually this tea is blended with other teas, I think we're the only ones who sell it completely unblended. The reason we carry the unblended version is because it's extremely high in catachins, probably higher than any other sencha. This is why it's hard to brew - it can be bitter so it needs a gentle, lower temperature brew and shorter brew time.

        This brings the astringency required to deliver a long lasting complex aftertaste. A challenging tea that rewards the one who pushes the astringency envelope. After the "bitter" comes the "sweet". Life lesson in a teacup.

        favorite tea i've bought from ocha so far. very natural grassy green taste. definitely more of an experience than just as a nice tasting hot beverage, elegant but still quite simple

        Very nice tea! grassy and citrusy.
        Not hard to brew at all, just make sure water temp is low...

        This sencha has a nice grassy scent and flavor. Some teas have a scent that is grassy, but the flavor isn't as bold. Not so with this tea; the flavor matches the scent. I'm careful to keep the water temperature as indicated on the bag and I think that does the trick. I get 3-4 steepings from a spoonful.

        very nice one for the price, leaves are not as powdery as with other teas here. Strong grassy stench not unpleasant, but noticeable. Have yet to test if its on match with Benifuuki in terms of dealing with allergies during season.

        Delicious and supple green. Great brew for the price.

        Is it good for cold brew?

        Probably not ideal for cold brew but good question, I've never tried it with this one.

        Is this a 2020 Sincha?

        Yes, as of the date of this writing and for about a month, this is shincha.

        Hi I was wondering how often you restock this tea. I’m very interested in trying it. Thanks!

        Unfortunately we just ran out of stock on that and we won't have it in again until the 2019 harvest. It was super popular.

        I would like to know if this tea is medium steam or light steam? Because the tag said Medium Steamed but the product description and product detail said it is light steamed.

        Our current version from 2018 is light steamed.
