Hibiki-an according to their site is a grower/seller of Uji Japanese teas. They like to do special/limited edition seasonal teas like the blends mentioned by Oni.
2009 is the first harvest I have missed completely (so far) from Hibiki-an as I got too busy trying other vendors. I have had generally all very good experiences with their teas with the exception of the lowest grades gyokuro which I ended up using for blending with sencha that needed a little something
I have tried most of the Asamushi and the Fukamushi grades of Sencha except Pinnacle with very positive results. I like the tiered grading of their teas, enables you to try a lower grade, better, better yet, and best within a particular type of tea. This is educational especially for beginners to Japanese teas.

"Try once" was once a mantra on the forum IM, as many became initiated to Japanese greens.
