    I really like this tea. It has a nice flavor - a bit different (I'm afraid I don't know how to describe how it's different, but it is a subtle difference). And with its low price, it is an excellent buy.

    Recently I ordered more teas so I got lost but if my memory serves me well in this sencha I felt a peculiar taste resembling something like gingerbread. Interesting tea, I will very likely buy it again in the near future!

    Relatively light, with a finish that somehow reminds me of seaweed, which isn't a bad thing. I like to use more leaf, and brew for long periods with low temperatures.

    This tea has a unique and at the same time classic flavor, however I found that unlike some of the other teas I've gotten from O-cha, this one is only high quality for the first steeping, and is pretty much flavorless after that.

    This is my first tea from o-cha.
    Didn't have any expectations and really loved it.
    I drink it almost every day now.

    Porcelain teapot, 2 teaspoons, ~100-120 ml water at 175F.
    First brew (60 sec) is delicious. Second (20 sec) lacks some of the notes of the first brew, but is still very tasty. Third brew (30 sec) quenches my thirst for tea for the day (I usually drink this tea in the evening).

    The best way to end the day - relax with a good book and a cup of this tea :).

    Lovely Sencha ! Reminds me of some Taiwan High Mountain Oolong. Subtle, great aroma and a very surprising price. First brew: 1 teaspoon / 90ml water / 79C/ 60 sec

    Easy-to-brew, excellent value. As an everyday easy drinker, there's still interest here. Some sweetness. Pleasant, light mouthfeel.

    Brewed two teaspoons with ~300ml 175F water 60 sec/30 sec/60 sec in a Fukamushi teapot.

    One of my favorite teas. The taste is sweet without any trace of bitterness and it's pretty easy to brew.

    As noted in other reviews, an absolutely great tea for its price and more reminiscent of high mountain green than your typical sencha. That being said, to me it seems not as intense or "rich" in flavor as the more typical senchas, but instead lighter, more subtle, delicate and elegant. Very balanced and enjoyable.

    Great every day tea! Sweet and refreshing. I am happy that I stumbled upon this fantastic tea. Once again, thank you O-Cha for coming through with another great tea variety!
