It's O-Cha.com's pleasure to be able to provide you with the Tsuen blend "Musashi", from Japan's oldest teashop, in a 140 gram package! A proprietary blend Yabukita breed karigane sencha,the stems from gyokuro leaves are added, giving this tea a rather strong astringency with somewhat of a "tart", sharp taste. Very similar to Tsuen's Otsuusan, Musashi is less sweet with a bit more astringency for those who like a stronger tasting green tea. Try it today!

    My go-to green tea. Great full astringent flavor that has a robust body, coming at a nice price. I will order this one again! :)

    Excellent tea at a great price. This is definitely one of my all-time favourites. It has a taste similar to "Uji Sencha Otsuusan", but a bit more round and it's a little easier to brew.

    I think this is the healthiest tea offered, and absolutely the best tasting. The 2016 harvest now being sold is very potent--I only need to use 60% of what I used for the 2015 to get the same strength.

    This sencha is quite good and an excellent bargain! Getting warm here and I'll be trying it as cold brewed iced tea soon.

    Awesome tea, freshness you can't compare to any seller in the market, love it.

    I love this one, exactly the astringency I was looking for. It gives it a somewhat lighter feel than other types, and reduces the amount of the spinachy, grassy flavors. Advantages:Very different, large quantity for the cost. Disadvantages:I had difficulty getting adequate strength out of 3rd infusion, but perhaps my water was getting cool.

    When you open the bag, it doesn't smell as fresh as other teas. However, after brewing, the taste is unique with strong tea taste and a hint of sweetness due to the stems from gyokuro leaves. Highly recommend it. Very good value at this price. It is 140g per package.

    Very enjoyable; sweet and interesting savory notes from the gyokuro stem. Definitely not too astringent or overpowering by any means Advantages: Very reasonably priced, brews very easily and consistently  Disadvantages: It's not free! ;)
