    Just finished 100g of this. My second tea after Kabusecha. It's got almost a walnut like taste in my opinion. Seems like it has a deep body and not very sweet at all like Kabusecha was.

    One of my favorites, I order it over and over again. Easy to brew, excellent quality for the price. Great tea to start your day!

    Fantastic value for money. Reasonably easy to brew, it has an intensive grassy aroma with a slightly sweet and fruity aftertaste. I particularly enjoy drinking it in the evening - a perfect way to end the day.

    I have ordered this tea a couple times in the past. Definitely one of my favorites. The popularity says everything of it. Good price with high quality. Great aroma without much astringency in taste. Not too hard to brew it right. Will order it again in the future.

    I've been buying from O'Cha for seven years now. Service has always been first rate. From ease of ordering on website to speed till items ship; they always meet or exceed my expectations.
    I've been using YM for a while now. I prefer its taste. It's easy to brew and never gets bitter.

    From the first sip from the first brew to the last sip to the last brew I really like this tea. It has all the element excellent tea for simple man like me should have. It tolerates little variation in the water temperature which suits me fine. I don't want to watch temperature too much.

    All three times I use same leaves, taste varies which is a pleasure. There is enough variation to keep my mouth excited but Yutaka Midori is easily recognized. I just love this tea.

Product questions

    What sencha would you recommend for a cold brew for ice tea?

    I also want to add peppermint tea to this ice tea.
    Do you recommend I brew the peppermint separately and then add it to the end mixture?
    Or can I add peppermint tea leaves to the cold brew along with the green tea leaves?
    I hope this is not too confusing.

    Thank you very much for your time!

    We don't recommend you mix our green tea with other types of leaves, they have totally different brew parameters. If you want to brew cold like this, I would recommend our green tea bag products.

    I am thinking about buying this shincha. Do you have certificates about test for radiation in shincha teas? I could not find them on the webpage.

    We used to carry certificates for the first 4 years after the disasters. However, unsafe levels of radiation were never found in any green tea from Southern Japan where this and most of our teas are produced. It is no long necessary for us to keep supplying certificates for non-existent radiation issues. Regardless, Japanese teas are still tested yearly by the Japanese government and private agencies. If there is ever an issue where radiation is found in Japanese green tea, we would resume posting test results. Until that time, we no longer post radiation certificates for any of our green teas.

    I just received this tea, thanks your great service as usual. I'm wondering if there's any way of telling whether I did really get the 2016 shincha version of this tea (maybe something on the packaging?).

    Look for the sticker in Japanese with this characters: ”新茶” (Shincha)

    I have bought this tea and also the Kagoshima Sencha Sae Midori. I think both of these teas are great! I wondered what's the difference between the two teas? For me they seem almost the same - just great! :-)

    Both of these green teas are considered deep steamed but to different degrees - the Sae Midori is greener in color, very cloudy, more deeply steamed, but less aromatic than Yutaka Midori. Sae Midori is also much easier to brew and it is not as astringent. The Yutaka Midori is not quite as green in color, however it is more aromatic, has more flavor, and is bolder.

    Is the recommended brewing temperature the temperature of the water prior to pouring into the kyusu or after pouring into the kyusu? i.e. if the recommended temperature is 170F should you pour 170F water into the pot or use hotter water so that the final temperature in the pot is 177F.

    The recommended brewing temperature is the temperature after pouring into the kyushu.  So you should compensate by using hotter water than the recommended temperature, and first pour into either your teacups (which will pre-warm them) and or also into your teapot before adding tea to drop the temperature. If the recommended brew temperature is 170 F, you should start with water around 180 F or even a bit higher.  How much pre-heating of the teacups and teapot depends on the type of tea, the kinds and sizes of the vessels, your starting temperature. Each time you transfer the hot water from one vessel to another the temperature will drop by about 10 degrees.  It's often a good idea for beginners to use a thermometer during each step so they can get an idea of what is occurring. Pouring 180 F water into a cold teapot will drop the temperature by at least 10 F, perhaps more. This is probably the trickiest part of making the perfect cup of green tea and it takes practice to perfect it.
