Such good tea. I tried some nice sencha about ten years ago from a now company, which no longer exists. I haven't been able to find such high-quality sench until now.
The Shizuoka collection was the perfect gift for my green tea-loving girlfriend, who loved the unique flavours and the fact it comes from local farmers in Japan. She’s yet to find green tea quite like it anywhere in Denmark!
Very nice grassy smell but not overwhelming. Leaves a nice after taste on the palette. Recommended.
I really enjoy the bright bluish green color of the tea as well as the taste so much! The color is brightly dark, but the intensity is just perfectly balanced mildness and bitterness with slight sweetness - not astringent at all. I am so proud of their perfect work! Drinker friendly even for Japanese. Good as a gift to my foreign friends as well as for myself as daily treat!
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

I loved the balance and the flavour consistency in the 3 servings I prepared. Umami is present throughout the tastings.
I was looking for a great gift for my colleagues which would be thoughtful, unique and have positive impact on my community. I was delighted to be introduced to Cup of Japan and their beautiful product range. I sent the Sakura tea to colleagues in three different countries and had fantastic support from the Cup of Japan team to make my complicated order go smoothly. My colleagues were delighted to have this beautifully packaged gift and a bit of Japan delivered to their homes. I will be using this company again in the near future.
Sent this 3 pack to my mum in the UK for Xmas and she absolutely loved it! Loved the teas and the distinct differences between the three, loved the story behind the teas and the company and loved the fact that she got something truly unique and Japanese all the way from Japan! Thanks guys!
Nice, tasty and warming tea - perfect for the season...I recommend it!
Loving these green teas and great to learn more about their origin and the farmers that create them.
Bought the Iwakura - 3 Pack. The promotion is really a good deal. Only have the chance to try Kaze as the other two packets are supposed to be a gifts. Kaze is exactly what is described, very light, and refreshing, like the wind! This is a tea which you can drink constantly. I love how light it is and yet do not compromise in terms of flavor and fragrance.
My second time purchasing tea from Cup of Japan and would definitely be patronising more. This tea was purchased as a gift and my friend absolutely love it!
These were really great teas. Nice packaging.
