Clean and light green sencha.

Very nice grassy smell but not overwhelming. Leaves a nice after taste on the palette. Recommended.

Beautiful & intriguing Tea!

I purchased SAKURA and MEBAE as a gift for a colleague. This was their feedback: The tea is exquisite- beautiful, nuanced flavors in a smooth and balanced brew. I don’t always say this about tea - but it is intriguing- I keep wanting to take another sip to experience the lovely flavor profile and try to identify what I was tasting

Great buy great taste!

This tea comes in at the right time during covid as it is extremely difficult to get high quality Japanese tea in sg. Cup of Japan makes it possible and easy to purchase!

With hints of a sweet flavour, Mebae has a layered sophisticated aftertaste that I find to be a particularly good companion whilst working.

これぞ日本の伝統、お茶!

狭山のお茶をいただきました。あっさりしたテイストの中にも日本茶特有の深みや香りが感じられました。もう市販のティーバッグには戻れない(笑)他の産地のお茶も飲みたくなったし、この日本の伝統を世界中に人にも知ってもらいたい!
