A beautiful green tea

Shoike is very silky and the flavour is complex. I highly recommend it!

This is what sencha is all about

I was born in Japan and am very particular about my tea. This is my go-to tea.

2nd Order

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 tea

Lovely, flavorful tea. I use much less than the recommended amount, and steep longer: perfect. Delicious tea, with subtle flavor notes.
