Uji Sencha "Musashi"


Score: 4.88. Votes: 8

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!

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

    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.

    This was my very first Green Tea experience, the flavor is outstanding and the more you work with it the more the flavor keeps coming. A little strong at first when your not use to REAL Green tea, but very enjoyable and full of flavor. Advantages: Thanks O-Cha.com for helping me get started into the world of Green Tea. Your customer service and great products make it like I have a Green Tea shop right here in my own town.

    Package is 140 grams, an excellent value for the price. A nice companion tea to Otsuu-san -- I love to alternate between the two. Surprisingly different from Otsuu-san, considering both teas are karigane sencha from the same producer. A nice strong, refreshing sencha -- worth trying if you are looking for something different from a reliable source.
