I really like this tea! It is my very first taste of karigane tea and I enjoy it very much. Very good gyokuro taste but it is more gentle on my sensitive stomach than regular gyokuro. I love this tea hot, but it is also wonderful cold brewed and when used in creating un...(more)

A very nice tea. I brewed my first session according to the package instructions and found it too harsh for my sensitive stomach. Lowering the temperature to 165-170 improved the taste profile for me very much! This tea is also very excellent and refreshing cold brewed ...(more)

Good quality and value for everyday matcha. Very fresh taste. Does not foam as thick as organic matcha.

Coming back to order this again. I really enjoyed this bean snack with my matcha, sencha and gyokuro. The slight sweetness compliments the tea perfectly. Highly recommend this artisanal snack that you will not be able to find here in the US.

I purchased this as part of a tea bag tasting set. I must admit that I did not care for the roasted taste when I brewed this tea hot. But when I tried this tea with cold brewing method, I loved the wonderful nutty, slightly sweet and smoky taste of the iced tea. So refr...(more)

A very green and very delicious tea! Love the convenience and am very pleased with the high quality flavor of this tea. I like this hot when too busy to brew loose tea, but also love it cold brewed. It is an absolutely unique taste experience to have this over ice!! Try...(more)

Very nice, high quality matcha set for anyone, not just beginners. It is everything you need except the matcha to get started, and the 120 bristle chasen is amazingly efficient at whisking good froth. Highly recommend.

Absolutely beautiful, high quality cups well worth buying. The size is a little too small to properly whisk a bowl of matcha, but it is doable if you are making a smaller portion. For high quality matcha, I would recommend buying one of the more traditional sized matcha...(more)
