First of all, let me be clear: O-cha.com does not provide anything less than the finest Japanese teas. Second, Tsuen is a totally high class shop. I ordered "Aoi" (an asamushi tea) as a break from the deep steamed teas I drank this summer. I am delighted with it! The color, aroma, and taste are just as advertised. This tea will be one to which I come back.

Excellent asamushi cha! Enjoyed a few sessions with this over the last few days. Fresh clean flavour tones over each brew.

I recently ordered this tea and have been very happy with it. You can really tell that this is a high grade sencha. This tea is an extremely good choice for those who prefer a sencha with a mellow taste.

Very good asamushi sencha :)
Pleasant taste, light, sweet and gentle. It is not too fragrant, but smells greenishly fresh. Great long sweet aftertaste. I think it is one of my favorites.
He-he, I bought mogake teapot in this store, and it is perfect match to that tea: always fresh good one cup of excellent tea. Love it.

This is by far my favorite. It can be too astrigent if brewed to long or too hot but otherwise is very nicely grassy hinted with sea-broth. I brew it hot at 170 or 172 F for the first one infusion but not for very long - 45 sec I think. It is very unique.

Certainly this tea does not disappoint. It has a flavour of its own, and using what I will think of as a Canadian technique, I achieved a good taste from the first brew. Its price and quality is comparable with other senchas available more locally to me, and I have no complaints.
My parameters: 1tsp / 4 minutes, 70C 250ml.
I have not tried O-cha's suggested parameters yet.
