Oi Ocha Koiaji Dark Green Tea from ITO EN

Style: Green Tea – Region: Japan

76 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 21st, 2019

The dry tea is tiny, broken pieces, almost like fannings. I assume it's a lower grade, "everyday" tea. I use a metal tea ball with a tight mesh to brew loose tea and there's a ton of sediment at the bottom of my cup, which is distracting and a bit off-putting.

Brewing, the tea smells like seaweed with underripe appl...

Oi Ocha Green Tea with Wakame Wakakuki from ITO EN

Style: Green Tea – Region: Japan

84 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 7th, 2019

I ended up overnight in the Detroit suburbs for work and found this tea in a Japanese grocery store.

The dry leaves are broken up into much smaller pieces than the Japanese senchas that I'm used to. It's very pungent, though, smelling of cut hay and alfalfa.

Adding the water releases just a ton of aroma. The colo...

Japanese Green Tea from Kirkland Signature / Costco

Style: Green Tea – Region: Japan

65 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 9th, 2019

As the other reviewers mentioned, ignore the directions. I prepared the tea using 8 ounces of 175°F water for four minutes (which is a bit longer than is generally suggested for green teas, but I find I like it that way).

The tea in the square, nylon bag is chopped, but not as finely as most bagged tea and is mixed...

Japanese Green Tea from Wei-Chuan

Style: Green Tea – Region: Japan

35 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 7th, 2018

Wei-Chuan has several different tiers of tea and this one is on the low end.

The tea bag smells very faintly of hay. Adding the water doesn't really bring out any extra aroma. The flavor's almost as weak as the tea smells. While hot, the flavor is practically nonexistent. When it cools down, a little flavor appears ...

Oi Ocha Green Tea from ITO EN

Style: Green Tea – Region: Japan

85 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 11th, 2017

The standard tea bags are packaged in plastic. When opened, the tea is quite pungent, smelling fresh, sweet and of seaweed.

I used 175° water for three minutes. This tea is really aromatic while brewing. The tea smells like seaweed, but not fishy.

The flavor is definitely of high-quality Japanese green tea, but ...

Organic Decaf Sencha Green Tea Bag from Yamamotoyama

Style: Sencha – Region: Japan

65 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 24th, 2017

This decaf certainly smells delicious. The dry teabag smells just like a sencha should. It's fresh, grassy, and a little seaweed. The tea is fine fannings, almost dust.

The tea steeps a bright green. The aroma, though a bit muted, is vegetal, like raw green beans.

The first taste is a strong, but pleasant bittern...
