Shoike - 80g Bag
Medium-body Shoike has equal astringency, sweetness, and umami. Its finish is just-right, making this tea perfect for almost any situation.
Shoike has an even balance of umami, sweetness, astringency, bitterness, and fragrance, in a medium-bodied sencha. The result is a round-character tea that is accessible for beginners and satisfying for more seasoned sencha drinkers.
This item’s full name is Shoike-no-o, and this is the name written on the package.

Shoike is very silky and the flavour is complex. I highly recommend it!
Great tasting sencha
Cannot wait to try other versions, highly recommended.
I was born in Japan and am very particular about my tea. This is my go-to tea.
2nd time ordering. Aftertaste balanced precisely between insistent astringency and a light, grassy sweetness. Recalls days at the beach, dark coarse sand dug from below the water level drying on the lighter fine sand of the surface layer.
Lovely, flavorful tea. I use much less than the recommended amount, and steep longer: perfect. Delicious tea, with subtle flavor notes.
