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! ;)

So far I've found this tea to be just a little thin in flavor. But its kind of roasty aroma is pleasant. Not that this is a roasted tea - I'm just describing. I like this tea but I much prefer the Uji Sencha Otsuusan. These two are supposedly similar though I found them to be very different. This is a nice tea. Not my preference but I think others will like it a lot.
