This product is currently in shincha form

From Shizuoka, a unique breed of Japanese green tea grown organically. A first rate, first harvest, deep steamed green tea, the high quality is obvious from the first sip. Strong "umami" sweetness, less astringent and mellow. As with many organic green teas, Organic Sencha "Oku Yutaka" is single estate and is not blended. Harvested from the first round of young spring leaves, it is certified organic. Nitrogen flushed and vacuum packaged, as fresh of an organic green tea as you can get.

Includes 100 grams of tea per package.

    A great tea. I found I had to use a little less water with this one to get the bolder taste that I enjoy. If you like something a little richer, I'd recommend Oku Midori or Yutaka Midori.

    Well, what a surprise. I wanted a cheap sencha for cold brewing at hot summer days. After sipping a bit it turned to be a really interesting tea – some nuances spoke for themselves. Shortly after I tried a classic warm preparation and the result was impressive. It is my discovery of a very very good sencha in its price category indeed. I will definitely buy it again !

    One of the best green teas ever tasted! This one reminds me of the sae midori sencha, but it is sweeter and its umami taste is much more pronounced. Very pleasant to the palate, subtle sweetness and minimal astringency. Deep green colour, and great bargain in terms of price! I'm definitely gonna be purchasing this one again.

    Wow--delicious. Medium steamed, it has a refreshing lightness. I taste melon too. Lovely light green color. Lacks a signature mouthfeel. Spring in a cup.

    This is easily my favorite sencha. I have tried many cheaper green teas and a few more expensive, but this is the one that I like the most. Smooth, delicate, sweet, with a pleasurable but subtle boldness that emerges as it cools.

    Never knew a tea could taste like this - I swear there is an after tone of honey. Very hard to make this tea bitter. I would have ordered more but they are out!

    Is Oku Yutaka organic green tea available for sale in tea bags? I got a tea bag with this tea in it on an airline flight from Okinawa to Fukuoka yesterday. I would like to purchase the tea in a tea bag rather than in bulk. Please advise. Thank you. Lovely tea!!

    Unfortunately we don't have a tea bag version of Oku Yutaka at this time.
