Ohmi tea has great prestige and is loved by many for its rich flavor and fragrance, which are brought about by the rich nature, plenty of sunshine and the beautifully clean waters and air coming from the surrounding Suzuka mountains.

According to the legends, Zen monks brought the first tea seeds to the area in the 14th century from Kyoto, so zen temples cultivated Ohmi tea first. Thanks to its characteristic aromas, by the 19th century, it became much in demand, even for export.

Wow. I thought this tea would have "notes" of sweet potato. No way. There's no mistaking the flavor nor aroma. I bought a 500g bag thinking it would be a suitable daily green tea, but that doesn't give this tea credit. I bought a handful of other senchas at much higher price points and find myself reaching for this one more often than the others. It is a sweet sencha that will bring a smile to your face. Maybe you should surprise yourself with this as well?

I'm really enjoying this tea. It has a very distinct aroma of roasted root veg that is very unique and makes this sencha one of my favourites for everyday drinking.

Very fresh and flavorful, will probably purchase again. I best liked this sencha brewed at 80 C for about 1:15 and could get 3-4 good steeps out of it.

This is really some exquisite Asatsuyu - it brews such delicious tea. Aromas of roasted potatoes for sure, velvety texture, a nice umami (but not overwhelming) aftertaste, and no bitterness at all. Brew it properly and you will be rewarded. My preference 1st brew = 1 min at 150 degrees Fahrenheit, 2nd and 3rd brew = 30 seconds at 150 degrees Fahrenheit

A delicious tea with a very nice subtle roasted flavor which compliments the sweet potato aroma. Was not bitter at all. Would recommend to first time buyers looking to get their feet wet. Personally I like to sweeten my tea with a little bit of local honey, a full teaspoon at most for 8 ounces. If you do choose to sweeten I would not recommend using sugar as it can overpower the subtle flavor notes. That being said this is a great tea to enjoy as is without sweetener.
