This is one of my all time favorites because of its very grassy aroma and taste. For me, the grassier the flavor, the better I like it. I've found my perfect cup is when I use about 2.8 grams of Fukamushi Sencha Kaoru to 4 ounces of water at 175 degrees. The first brew is for about a minute and the second brew is 50 seconds. Everyone's taste is different, however. And remember, you will need a teapot that can strain out the fine particles of this deep-steamed variety.

Excellent quality. I've been trying quite a lot different fukamushi senchas, but this became instantly my favourite. It has zesty grassy flavour with really mild roastiness and it leaves sweet and long lasting aftertaste. The flavour is strong without being overpowering. It steeps into bright green, cloudy tea. Beautiful tea with really good price.

Perfect ration price/quality. Nice grassy aroma and green color make this tea favorite for me. Of course Sae Midori is more interesting tea, but this one is lovely everyday tea.

I am a big Sencha green tea lover and O'Cha gives me the chance to experience different types of green tea from different Japanese area. The Fukamushi Sencha brings me back the Japan with his deep, rich flavor. One of my best!

Fukamushi Sencha Kaoro was everything I was expecting and more. To start, I very much like the nitrogen sealed packaging the tea comes in, the graphic design being my favorite. The tea itself has a wonderful grassy aroma and flavor that you'd expect from an excellent fukamushi sencha. I would certainly buy this tea again, and recommend it to all of my friends.

This is our current favorite - deep steamed, vibrant green, cloudy, and with a lovely "green" flavor and a hint of sweetness. My wife and I look forward to it daily - more than once! Delicious.

I usually drink Yutaka Midori, but decided to give this one a try. I learned that I only needed one teaspoon for my pot rather than the usual 7 grams that the other senchas use. It's absolutely delightful, not as grassy as other greens, but more mellow. My husband, an avid coffee drinker, discovered this tea and says it gives him energy, so now I have to watch out for my green tea! It's in jeopardy! I think this one is now my new favorite. Thank you for great senchas.

This tea strikes me as middle-of-the-road. It feels like a higher-quality version of sencha I've been served at restaurants in Japan—inoffensive, easy to like, but doesn't have any standout qualities. A good daily brew at a good price.
