Kagoshima Organic Sencha Kurasawa


Score: 4.91. Votes: 11

Grown organically in Kirishima Kagoshima, Kagoshima Organic Sencha "Kurasawa" is an organic medium steamed sencha green tea which has a rather intense green-yellow color to it and carries a a nice grassy aroma. This year's version was grown semi-shaded and is considered "kabusecha".

Unique to this sencha is it's high catechin levels - this green tea has approximately 1.5 to 2 times higher levels of catechins than regular sencha! For this reason it is also packs a very astringent punch to it so brew with care at lower tempertures. If you are looking for maximum green tea health benefits and high levels of catechins, this is your tea! If brewed with care it is very delicious and flavorable, we are confident you will enjoy this product. As with all of our loose leaf green teas, packaged in nitrogen flushed packaging.

Price shown includes 100 grams of tea per package!

    By far the best tasting green Tea for the money. Read the other reviews about brewing temperature. Key to get it right, else that smooth and mellow cup you get when the temperature is right, is quickly spoilt. It leaves a very calming feeling after a few cups but topped of with a cup of Matcha Tea after the final steep of the leaves you get an alert but relaxed mood. Great if you have something difficult to take on at work. Would highly recommend this product, probably not the best one to choose for those just starting out on Green Tea. But for those who are looking for a sweet / grassy / clean finish drink, then this really is the one to choose. Shame its not shipped in larger packets as its easy to drink it quickly.

    This is a beautiful tea! Rich green mostly whole leaves. If you follow the instruction about water temperature and timing it will yield a wonderful cup of tea. I found it grassy with very nice astringency. A very good value at this price.

    Tasty tea, nice green colour. Above 70 degrees gets really bitter, brewing longer and at lower temperature is ok.

    For my second tea (good quality and use brewing parameters). they have a good flavors (not too muxch herbe than my first), i have to take habit, but it is good start. It's good when goes in cold. Pour mon deuxième thé (de bonne qualité et utiliser les bons paramètres pour l'infusion). Il a un bon arôme (goûte moins l'herbe que mon premier. Je doit en faire une habitude, mais ces un bon départ. Il goûte bon aussi quand il devient froid.

    I did not buy this tea for the healthy benefits, as all green tea is healthy. I'm am very weary of people that just drink green tea for health reasons, I love the taste of all O-Cha.com tea selections and look on the health benefits as a very nice byproduct. This is a wonderful tea and not difficult to brew, as long as you brew at around 68-70 degrees
