It's O-Cha.com's pleasure to be able to provide you with the Tsuen blend "Otsuusan" karigane sencha, from Japan's oldest tea shop. This is probably the most popular green tea in the Tsuen tea shop in Uji Japan. A proprietary blend Yabukita breed karigane sencha. The stems from gyokuro leaves are added, giving this tea somewhat of a unique "tart", sharp taste.  A bit sweeter and more green than Tsuen's similar Musashi version. Try it today!

Package includes 100 grams.

    Strong flavor, a little bit sweet, very resonable price. Recommend.

    One of the best green teas I've ever had. One of the best values as well.

    I'm not so great at describing the flavour, but it's strong without being overpowering. Sweet with umami, generally well rounded. 2nd brewings are also as good as first brewings of some green teas I've tried, which makes this incredibly good value.

    This is my daily tea that I have been drinking from O-cha for over five years. I have tried many and this one I prefer and it is reasonably priced.

    Every time I open the tin with this tea inside, I remember why it's one of my favorites to keep around as an everyday green tea. Otsūsan is delicious and quite affordable. It's a touch sweeter than its cousin Musashi (which is also very tasty)—and at this price, I don't hesitate to fill a larger tin with 200 g of it.

    Very nice. Not as sweet as other stem teas, but the tartness is really pleasant.

    This one tastes great the first brew but you have to use a little more tea leaves. The second brew does not have the same taste.

    I was disappointed in this tea (and still am, each time I try it). The heavenly fragrance I associate with my best sencha experiences is not there. I have tried using more or less leaves, all at 175 degrees, but the result is a flat taste, not fragrant, with this tart or slightly sour edge that others have tried to describe.

    I don't get any sense of gyokuro from this tea, and the feel of sencha is very subdued. And as someone else mentions, even the second brewing is indistinct, and the third very watery.

    I should say that I have tried other sencha blends (from other tea vendors), such as sencha with toasted rice, and have always been disappointed. These just dilute the sencha experience, which is wonderful with the right high quality tea. So this blend is another confirmation that for me, I should stick with straight sencha.

    This is indeed a somewhat tart tea but this style and taste is very popular where it originates in Uji and if you go there you will be served this kind of tea when you go visit tea houses. It is not supposed to be floral, even though it uses gyokuro stems. To make this properly you make it with a lot of leaf and the first infusion is the best for sure. Technique is important when making this tea.

    I know that it is not certified organic, but is the Uji Sencha Otsuusan (SKU 16146) grown pesticide free?

    I can't say specifically if this particular product was ever grown pesticide free at some point of it's growth cycle, this varies from grower to grower, tea to tea. However, pesticides, when used, are usually used in the late fall and winter before new growth has commenced and spring growth normally does not have pesticide exposure. All Japanese green teas, organic or not, are subject to strict regulations on MRL (minimum residue levels) and are regularly tested for this.
