From the first harvest, a very special sencha from Kagoshima prefecture located at the southern tip of Japan. Undoubtedly one of our most most popular green teas, this item is definitely a favorite with green tea connoisseurs. Yutaka Midori is an exceptionally “green” green tea. We urge you to compare this sencha against any of the others available on the internet for it’s nice emerald green color, wonderful aroma, and excellent taste. Try some today!

This tea is quite finicky, but totally worth it if you are patient and careful with it. I found that the water needs to be JUST right for this tea, because it easily goes bitter if it is too hot, but if the water is too cool it won’t bring out the abundance of flavor.

This tea has a very strong green aroma, both dry and in the pot. Very umami, sweet, but not quite as sweet as I was expected, and quite astringent. In fact, the first steep is slightly more astringent than I would like, but subsequent steepings were beautiful. I can get about six good steepings out of this tea.

I can say that this is one of the best green teas I have had.

The vendor itself was pleasing too. I received my tea in about a week in a half (from Japan to Florida!). I was impressed with the quick service. I will definitely order from them again.
