    Amazing smell, very different to all the other senchas i had, it’s hard to describe it, but it smells like some kind of a fruit, intense green colour and “gyokuro like” taste and effects, i no longer believe the idea that organic tea has weak taste or effects, this is a very rich tasting tea. A special treat, so far this was my favourite sencha i ever had. Arigatou !

    After a few years of drinking this Asatsuyu, it is still in my top best senchas with the Okuyutaka, both have incredible deep green colour and creaminess. The Asatsuyu is a bit more like a gyokuro compared to the Okuyutaka, so it’s like drinking a daily incredible gyokuro-sencha :-). Hoping the stock will be replenished soon as i plan to order again !
