From Kagoshima, an extremely flavorful, full of umami,  deep steamed green tea.  The high quality of this Oku Midori fukamushi green tea is obvious from the first sip. It has a very beautiful emerald green color to it and strong aroma. Harvested from the first round of young spring leaves. Our personal opinion - This is probably one of the all around best green teas you will ever drink. Nitrogen flushed and vacuum packaged, as fresh of a green tea as you can get.

Our price includes 100 grams of tea per package.

    This has a very smooth flavor and is a steal at this price!

    This tea is the best sencha I have ever had. It is a deep flavor, so be ready for that. I steep maybe 2 minutes first steeping, then the next 3, no time at all. The package arrived in Texas in 7 days, including the weekend. I will be ordering from o-cha for the rest of my life.

    My 3rd order from O-Cha. Really enjoyed Sencha Yutaka Midori and especially Orgainic Kirishima Sencha. I found Oku Midori aroma was weak when I opened package and subsequently the taste flat. Changed water temps, infusion times, water and amount of tea but did not change taste. Surprised and very disappointed w/this choice. Will order again but go back to what I liked.

    This is my current favorite. It has a lovely grassy note and a beautiful green color. I found the best infusion time for me on the first brew was 45 to 50 seconds and 35 seconds for the second brew. The particles are very small so be sure to use a teapot for the deep steamed variety, one that catches these small bits.

    If you like a strong, grassy tea, this one is consistently at the top of my list. I have ordered many teas (all prices) from o-cha.com and I keep coming back to this one. My brew times are 60s-30s-90s. Many thanks to o-cha.com for giving me access to truly exceptional teas.

    If you like deep green, grassy slightly sweet green tea, you'll love this. Super fragrant when you open the packet. To my mind it needs a short brew time, say one minute, and a little experimentation to get it to your own exact preference, but it's worth the effort. At this price point I think it deserves 5 stars.

    One of the best teas I had. Tastes well, has a rich green colour, smells really good. Although I would say not to eat anything sweet before drinking it, to experience the natural sweetness of the tea and appreciate taste to its fullest. Also, can't stress enough how important it is to use good quality water, it makes a big difference ( not to mention a good tea set ).

    I've ordered probably ten different teas from O-cha.com, and this is my favorite. Beautiful color, easy to brew, wonderful second steep (my favorite!), and the flavor is complex but still approachable. The dry leaves have a wonderful aroma, too.
