Mecha is often regarded as being in the same class as premium-grade Sencha. The tea has a distinctive richness and satisfies a desire for a stimulating drink. Mecha is the collection of only the tiny buds of the tea leaves that have a concentrated umami taste. It has a strong aroma and flavor.

The buds are separated from the leaves during the manufacturing process of making sencha, so it can be considered a byproduct of premium-grade sencha, but this is actually a fabulous tea and a great value.

Mecha tea is a bold and rich tea, and it is great for an afternoon drink to increase your energy. If you like robust Sencha, give Mecha buds tea a try we think you will be happy you did.

4g (1 tsp) / One cup / 80°C (176°F) /30 sec / brew up to 3-4 times.

A more refined and sweet umami-rich tea that contains not just buds but everything—leaves, stems and buds—may be of interest. MechaKucha Buds, Stem and Leaves Green Tea.

Mecha, you betcha!

Mecha buds is the best tea ever, to me. Somewhat bitter, full flavour and good value for the money in that a little goes a long way. I am so glad Chado Teahouse carries it.

Mecha Buds

This is my second favorite tea, a full, complex flavor.

if you like strong sencha, you'll like mecha buds

I'm a big tea drinker of fukamushi style sencha, and I like it strong (koi). I was very pleased with these mecha buds, and sorry they are now out of stock!

Double Expresso like

Not for every one but... if you sometimes like the kick of a double expresso... then you will like this tea. If you infuse it for too long (more than 30 to 40 seconds) ... it will have too much bite so be very careful. Don't drink this tea after mid-afternoon. My favorite tea is Fukamushi so I don't mind a bit of bitterness... but be careful with Mecha Buds. To say that this tea will surprise you is an understatement. It will knock you over. Not for the meek but if you like wild adventures then you may find it worth walking on the wild side!
