Score: 5.00. Votes: 13

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.

    Amazing sencha at this price! 3-4 steeps per dose. Really clean, classic flavor profile.

    Got through several brews of this over the last two weeks; and was surprised how good it is. Great fragrance, colour and taste. Hits 3 brews well with the expected profile changes across each brew. Definitely one of my favourite green teas of 2016. Will be one to come back to for future orders.

    Really good, sweet sencha. The flavour is mellow with nice little acidic "zing" to it. As a chumushi it's not as strong as fukamushi senchas in terms of flavour, but it is really nice as it is; light, smooth and grassy. Just brew it carefully since Oku Yutaka gets bitter quite easily.

    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.

    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.
