      Kirishima Organic Sencha

      Grown organically in the mountainous Kirishima area of Kagoshima. Medium steamed, this sencha has an intense green color to it, medium body, and carries a rather intense, nice grassy aroma and an unusually strong umami flavor. Organic Kirishima Sencha has a very nicely balanced astringency, aroma and taste. The quality of this tea got our attention and we decided to carry it for those organic green tea enthusiasts who demand the very best. Very delicious, we are confident you will enjoy this product. As with all of our loose leaf green teas, packaged in nitrogen flushed packaging.

       O-Cha.com's package includes 100 grams of tea.

        Considering I am not a fan of medium to deep steamed teas, I think this is one of the best available for that category. The Asamushi version is more flavorful at least towards the real tea flavor in my opinion. Most medium to deep steamed teas introduce other flavor components I dont particularly care for, such as chlorophyll, while muting the true tea flavor. This tea thankfully is not chlorophyll heavy(raw wet grass flavor) or dominant. Its still have some complexity to it, and some dry grassy flavor which is superior. For those who love deep steamed teas, this one won't disappoint, and to those who don't normally like this category, this is a tea to try that is surprisingly decent.

        This is a rather interesting sencha with a strong aroma upon opening the bag. It tastes somewhat brothy and a little salty. It reminds me of Asatsuyu sencha to an extent, but different in ways; happens to be they come from the same area. It has a lot going on flavor-wise and I'd recommend it for anyone wanting something above the average sencha.

        Every tea I've had from o-cha had a unique flavor, but this is one of my favorites.

        This one has been my favourite of the two senchas that i've ordered. Amazing, intense and delicious green tea. Will be ordering more!

        Very lovely tea. Most of the teas are of high quality and you'll have to try them all to arrive at your favourites.

        Delicate, high quality Sencha. I use it for 3 infusions and all 3 are quite different offering different shades of taste and smell. Will be buying again.

        Tastes great, is organic and can last for at least 4 infusions (haven't tried more yet). Well worth its price.

        I've been making good tasting green tea for years and w/o special pots or temperature gauges. I believe taste depends on freshness and cultivars that I like. My first bag of Kirishima Organic Sencha was very good. Upon opening my second bag I immediately noticed the dry aroma was not as strong and the taste did not satisfy like the first bag. Yes, I could make it stronger by adding more tea and adjust the water temperature and seeping time but it never had the sparkle of the first bag. To me the dry aroma indicates how it will taste. My second bag is from the same harvest year, 2016. Near the last few cups from my first bag I also noticed that the taste also seemed to lose it's sparkle. I believe the closer one buys after the harvest, the quicker one uses it after opening, the more likely the taste will satisfy. I will wait till the 2017 harvest and possibly change the variety before purchasing my next bag.
