    I was astonished by the deep green colour of this tea! It has a very refined taste, considerably grassy and vegetal, with a non-excessive astringency. Plus the price is not as high as many other green teas, so there is a great value for money.

    As someone who seeks out marine/oceanic flavors from Japanese tea, this one delivers in a huge way -- salty and fresh, with a hugely satisfying wet leaf aroma. Makes a really tasty cold brew as well!

    Very good tea, and excellent servis. This became an O-cha nice tradition.

    Very fast delivery to Bulgaria. I have never think a green tea could have so nice flavor and taste. Really glad, that I have believe to words of my friend, who recommend me Your site!

    I really like the flavour. I bought it based on some of the earlier reviews claiming it was salty, broth-like, had corn-like flavours, etc. and I was not disappointed. Brews quite easily too. I find it fairly unique compared to the other senchas I drink, and I plan to buy it again in the future.

    I purchased this tea to serve as a quick easy brew, during the day. While it is quick and easy, it isn't anywhere near as good as other sencha available. The taste is mellow, a bit salty and vegetal. It barely made a third brew with a big drop in flavour from the first two brews.
    Overall, its not bad for one of those brewing sessions where you want something quickly, but its not very memorable and you won't miss it. For the price, its just OK from my point of view - as with many things in life, you get what you pay for.

    It's a lot lighter than any of the other green teas I've ordered from o-cha. The aromas and flavors are really subtle. You can still feel a little bit of astringency, but drinking this tea is almost like drinking hot water to me. I'm inclined to blame the light steaming, but before I draw any conclusions I plan on playing around with the steeping process a little bit (I might come back and post an update). Definitely not my cup of tea so far, though.

    Edit: I got some decent results when I used longer than recommended steeping times. The times I used for brews 1-3 were 1:30, 0:45, and 1:30 respectively. The first two cups were much better (still light), but the third cup was very forgettable.

    Yields a clear, yellowish cup. The aroma has a notable briny, broth-like quality (quite amazing) while the flavor is a nicely balanced combination of vegetal and corn-like flavors. I think this might be my new favorite tea at this price point.
