Unlike other teas I bought through o-cha.com, this tea did not come in a resealable bag. No complaints otherwise.

I brewed according to the instructions and the flavor is strong and a little sweet. I really enjoy this tea although I don't normally enjoy deep steamed teas. Recommended.

This is a lovely sencha. Super smooth, goes down the throat with ease. Vegetal, with even some milkiness.
Resteeps really well.
This tea relaxes me; I dig it.

It is fun to read as some customers found here some 'lingering umami' and even 'lingering umamai'. Did You meant 旨み? Taste?
I do not trust 'organic' teas, because of high price and so-so quality, and I bought it from curiosity.
When I opened that package I wasn't really impressed, because chunky pieces of tealeaves and big amount of teadust. Tea has some bitter smell and brownish colour which usually comes with deep steaming. I am not really into deep steamed teas.
However, that one is good, it has good strong sencha taste, little grassy, little bitter, and it has proper aftertaste. It get bitter fast if You overbrew it, but it is normal :)
BTW, a very good tea, not really sure if it match it's price.

This was my first order and experience of fresh sencha so I cannot compare it with other tees. Opening the package there was a wonderful, strong sweet smell that remembers passionfruit. The taste in the cup ist intense and delicious, the second steep tends to be bitter, so I brew it for a shorter time.

This tea definitely does justice to the term "organic". It is delicious!

I just finished my first cup of this tea. Very delicious, long umamai flavor. I will include it in my regular list along with the higher priced teas here.

This tea does't have the same "shine" that some senchas do, but the flavor is all there! Strong but still sweet, with a nice clear color.
Same great flavor as regular sencha, but nice to know that this one is organic.
