Where To buy: Obubu Tea
Otsukimi (お月見) literally means “moon viewing” and is closely associated with Japanese festivals celebrating the moon in Autumn. It is at this time of the year when the moon appears brightest, and Japanese eat certain dishes such as tsukimi dango (round, white dumplings), edamame (soybeans), Japanese chestnuts, etc.
Our Otsukimi Sencha or Sencha of the Autumn Moon was named after this Japanese tradition not only because we harvest it in late September when the festivals occur, but also because the tea leaves and stems produce a bright yellow-green sencha with a round flavor.

I think Sencha of the Autumn Moon from Obubu is REALLY incredible!
This has all of the ‘right amounts’ of all of the stereotypical green flavors in it without any one flavor dominating the others.
It leaves a sweeter after taste that is really wonderful!
Call me crazy but sometimes, as many of you may already know, I tend to associate songs with certain teas. If you were to put the song “I’m a little bit Country – I’m a little bit Rock N Roll” up against this tea…well… it would be the tea equivalent to that song!
It has a little bit (or just enough – for that matter) of EVERYTHING GOOD in a Green Tea!
It’s Totally YUM! i would recommend it to just about anyone!
