From O-Cha.com

(NOTE: Temporarily discontinued). A first rate, first flush green tea, currently in shincha form and ready for immediate shipment. Harvested from the first round of 2009 young spring leaves, this 100% Yabukita green tea comes from Shizuoka Prefecture. If you like an “intense” green tea, this is the tea for you. Very green and very thick. More astringent than most or our green teas, the taste of this fukamushi sencha remains on the palate for an extended time. As this is a very bold green tea, be sure to not brew too hot, for too long, or with too much leaf. As with all of our loose leaf green teas, freshly packaged in nitrogen filled bags.

Hey I was poking around at your notes. You mentioned how you got this on sale. Do you remember how much of a sale it was? Does o-cha ever do black Friday type sales?

Hi Rachel:

If I remember correctly, it was $10 for 100g. Unfortunately, Kevin doesn’t sell this fuka anymore.

However, O-Cha is having a great sale right now:

They have some great teas on sale, both high-end and ones further down the scale.

Best wishes,

Unfortunately this is one of my least favorite Sencha’s form O-Cha. It just tastes ‘dull’ and seems to lack the pleasant full-bodied/grassy taste that I’ve become so fond of. Still better then most of the stuff I’ve tried out there, but at this price I would have preferred the slightly cheaper Kagoshima Sencha Yutaka Midori more.
