This has to be one of my favorite senchas. Just had it for the first time within the last two weeks but have been drinking it everyday. It is quite amazing. Well worth the money. Personally found that 175 degrees is the perfect temperature.

This has been one of my favorite matchas that I have tried. The price is great for 30 g and the taste is outstanding. Very vegetal and tons of umami. No bitterness whatsoever even if you use more than what is normally used for usacha. I think I prefer this one to the kyou mukashi, but in all honesty, both are quite good. You’ll definitely be glad you bought this. Found that 180 degrees was the ideal temperature to get the best flavor out of this matcha.

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 1 tsp 2 OZ / 59 ML

Just got the 2014 shincha yutaka midori last week and it is quite amazing. So incredibly fresh and flavorful. It is a shame that they are already sold out of it. I have had the normal sencha version as well and it is just as good. I’ve found that to get the best flavor, use about a teaspoon and a half in 170 degrees for the first two steeps, then much higher for the third. You won’t be disappointed!

This is a very delicious tea from O-cha! It is not the easiest tea to brew in the world but once you get it right, it is quite good. My favorite O-cha tea is their Yutaka Midori but this comes in not far behind. Definitely recommend this one!

I’ve been sipping on this tea for a few weeks now and it has quickly become one of my favorites. So much so that I had to order this years shincha version! The taste of this deep steamed fukamushi is out of this world. I’ve found that I can consistently get three very good brews out of one serving. My favorite is always the first, but I suppose that is with all green teas. For me, the first cup is the true essence of whatever specific green tea you are drinking. With this yutaka midori, the first cup is dark green and has layers upon layers of flavor. The second cup is even more of a brilliant green and still tastes great. The price is also good in my opinion. BUY THIS FUKAMUSHI :)

Flavors: Asparagus, Grass, Seaweed

Pure amazingness! My first koicha, which my mom bought me for my 21st birthday and I so wish I could drink this stuff everyday! But sadly that’s just too much money. If you’re into matcha, then splurge the money on this at least once, you won’t regret it. A really great experience!

Preparation
2 tsp 1 OZ / 44 ML

I’ve already reviewed this tea, but I really didn’t give it the review that it deserved. The first few times that I steeped this tea, I was brewing it at 175 F and while still good, I felt like I really just was not getting as much flavor as I wanted. And since this is considered as an alternative to pricier gyokuro (tea wing’s description) thought I would brew it in a similar fashion as I would with gyokuro. I used 2 teaspoons, and started at 145 F (increasing by 10 degrees each steep). Once I did this, all I can say is WOW! The first cup especially, was stunningly good. “Deep and savory” like Tea Wing’s description. Please but this tea, you’ll be glad you did.

Preparation
145 °F / 62 °C 1 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 5 OZ / 147 ML

I was not one of the people who got this in the steepster select, but as most of the reviews were very good, and knowing that tea wing is pretty amazing I had to try it. It is just as good as advertised and reviewed. Easily one of my favorites!

This is simply the best gyokuro I’ve ever had. I have only brewed one teaspoon so far, as I just opened it today, but I easily brewed into the 5th steep and the flavor was still incredible. Tea wing’s description of it is perfect. The buttery notes that you get are very interesting. Never had a buttery flavor in tea before and I’ve gotta say I love it! Do yourself a favor and buy this, although it is expensive, it is well worth every penny, at least for a try. You won’t regret it. Tea wing is top level and I really don’t think you will find better tea anywhere in the US
