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.
Very good everyday tea. For my taste, I found the recommended temperature to be too high for the first steeping. 165-170 degrees seems to bring out the qualities that I seek in better green teas. I am looking forward to trying the other offerings from Ocha & Company.
If you are looking for authentic emerald green Japanese tea Ocha is the place at a great price!!
Fukamushi sencha green tea is a excellent alternative to classic sencha. I would like to highlight its sweetness. I definitely recommend it.
This tea is so green that you'll end up looking like Kermit if you drink it a lot, and that's a good thing. It's not just deep steamed, it's deep flavour and colour are unmatched by any other Sencha available anywhere. Highly recommended, and it organic too!
This tea was excellent, I have had a number of your teas and all of them are outstanding. Fresh and flavorful.
