I want to make my first order from yuuki-cha (till now I mostly ordered from Thes-de-Japon and Den's). I'm trying to drink more organic and that seems like a good direction. Would be happy to hear about good (futsumushi) senchas you had from there.

I just looked at the current offerings and don't recognize the names of those I particularly liked from past orders. Puzzled now.

Ya, I feel like a few years ago there was more interest than now....

My favourite from that site is Sencha Imita. It had an incredible aroma. But I'm not that much experienced in sencha...

I'm pretty new to ordering direct from Japan, but my 2nd order which I just placed was with Yuuki-cha. I'm still waiting on the shipment, but I ordered their Ureshino Sencha and Kagoshima Sencha Satsuma No Kanpu. In the late 70s, I was in Kyushu as an exchange student for a summer and I loved the daily green tea that my family drank there. I recently found one of those family members and they told me it was from the Ureshino area. I'll let you know what I think when it arrives! I also ordered a Tokonome kyusu from them as well! Did you order anything yet?

I'm really enjoying the Organic Ureshino Sencha as one of my "everyday" teas. The price is reasonable and the flavor is very good. It is a chumushi however, so it's a bit more broken up than a typical asamushi or futsumushi. However, I enjoy the bolder flavors or deeper steamed teas and this one is to my liking. I wasn't as crazy about the Kagoshima Sencha Satsuma no Kunpu but it's growing on me as well. It's flavor seems more subtle, delicate and less complex. I'm still learning how to describe flavors and aromas and I'm adjusting time and temperature to see the differences with all of these teas and I find it all very fascinating!

I haven't ordered any sencha/gyo from Yuuki-Cha yet, but I did order a black and oolong an it also seems to me that their teaware is of decent quality and very affordable compared to most suppliers of Japanese tea, after purchasing a cute little houhin for about 14$.

(edit: I do order from them in small quantities considering Chip's bad experience with them...)
