Highly recommend

Mitsumi is one of my favorite Ikkyu teas. Its light umami flavor adds to the soft vegetal taste. Matsumi has a beautiful soft green color and gets darker with the second and third brews. I love that it is low in caffeine. I can enjoy a cup in the afternoon as well. I prefer to brew this tea at 145 degrees, it seems to be more flavorful.

A wonderful aroma

I loved this sencha. I found that it brews best at higher temperatures (as suggested), when it produces a wonderful range of aromas on top of its umami: malt, nuts, honey in the first cup. The aroma of the second cup, surprisingly, reminded me of hot milk and toasted brown bread!

MITSUMI

So far, this has been my favorite sencha among those I have tried. It is very light and easy on the stomach, yet flavorful and full-bodied. It evokes fresh summer mornings at the seaside, while retaining sufficient grassiness to supplement the taste palette. I believe it will be my go-to sencha for quite a while.

MITSUMI

Mitsumi is probably one of my favorite Senchas right now. It comes on a little strong if you follow the instructions to a T, but I personally prefer the stronger taste. There is a good amount of Umami and I find myself savoring this one and brewing 3-4 cups!
