        Hi, what are the recommended steeping times for the second and third steepings? It's 74C for 90 seconds for the first? Thank you.

        For this tea, the first steep time is about 60 seconds. The second steep is usually about 30 seconds, then for the third it extends to 90 seconds. The reason for this is after the first steep, the leaves are primed but after the second steep, they're also leached quite a bit. As far as temperature is concerned, the first steep is the most important and the subsequent steeping are not that critical.

        Lovely. Delicate and yet full of flavour, it has a pleasant flowery aftertaste. The three brews obviously differ, yet all have interesting qualities.

        This is a very nice tea. Light and mellow if brewed with cooler water. It isn't my favorite (I prefer the San No Ma, for example). But overall a very good tea.

        Good green tea. Has nice aroma with a lighter taste, not as strong as something like miyabi, which is my favorite sencha.

        First of all, let me be clear: O-cha.com does not provide anything less than the finest Japanese teas. Second, Tsuen is a totally high class shop. I ordered "Aoi" (an asamushi tea) as a break from the deep steamed teas I drank this summer. I am delighted with it! The color, aroma, and taste are just as advertised. This tea will be one to which I come back.

        Excellent asamushi cha! Enjoyed a few sessions with this over the last few days. Fresh clean flavour tones over each brew.

        I recently ordered this tea and have been very happy with it. You can really tell that this is a high grade sencha. This tea is an extremely good choice for those who prefer a sencha with a mellow taste.
