Fukamushi Means 'Deep Steamed' in Japanese. The steaming process is twice as long as usual, breaks down the structure of the leaf, releasing 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.

The Organic Fukamushicha was my first order. I shall definitely order more, for it is a reasonably priced, delicious tea! I have become very fussy and possessive about my Sencha tea, and this one works well for me.
My new favourite tea from Ocha and for that matter favourite tea from anywhere.
The tea delivery was fast and nicely packed in foil covered packaging. The tea quality is great, can’t find similar at local stores. The tea has a smell of caramel and fresh cut grass. It has a beautiful light green color. It takes only few min to have delicious, refreshing tea. I will buy it again.
This is the best tasting green tea I have ever had. It's super smooth and delicate in flavor. So much better than any of the bag varieties you can find in the States. I also love that the steeping time is short. I'm able to fix a cup of tea in a matter of minutes and I like to enjoy it after dinner to unwind. I will definitely order again!
This Kabusecha has a deep green cup as you would expect from a tea that has been covered with black nets for some time, to create the ‘wild tea conditions’ that allow for more green/beneficial ingredients.
Rich texture and slightly bitter which makes me think of an abundance of Katechins which are highly effective in chasing free radicals and are a powerhouse for liver and kidneys. Definitely recommend it and for sure will get some more.
