Fukamushi Means 'Deep Steamed' in Japanese. The steaming process which is twice as long as usual, breaks down the structure of the leaf and releases valuable healthy nutrients and bioactives such as beta-carotene and Vitamin E into the brew. Deep intense green colour, fuller rounded flavour with distinctive fine-floating tea particles. Rich and mild. Increasing popularity in Japan due to its mild taste and extra health benefits. Growing in the sun increases the amount of the antioxidant Catechins (EGCG) and Vitamins.
CAN BE BREWED COLD
Please Note. The teas has been steamed for a longer period which results in the tea having smaller leaf particles compared to regular Sencha.
I lived a long time in Japan and this is authentic Japanese green tea. The taste is wonderful and is my first drink of the day each morning. Don't over heat the water and let set 1 minutes or less and you will be able to add water twice more with excellent results. Thank you Gary for sorting out the issues with the 'power' in the leaves, and your kind offer to check and see the reasons for it. Thank you for the additional packet. This tea is always fresh and delicious.
Sin duda el té de mejor calidad que he probado nunca.
This tea is very pleasant, especially during the very hot part of summer when I find my usual preference of genmaicha is a bit too roasted of a flavor to enjoy in the heat. It is much lighter in flavor than I expected but in a good way, it has a smoothness I very much like.
I have really enjoyed it and will recommend it to anyone
Excellent tea at a fair price. I like both this and the Gyokuro (also from Ocha and Co), so I buy both and alternate them, depending on how I feel at the time.
