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.
CAN BE BREWED COLD
ordered first time and quite satisfied with the purchase.
I feel the taste quite well, it is so nice that I sometimes mix the remaining leaves (after drinking the liquid) into other juice and drink it too.
Very likely will order more but still want to try other teas as well from this brand, probably black one next.
Also, I liked this one more than Gyokuro, probably personal matter.
Oh forgot ... use luxury tea cap for this tea.
Our second order - we love this tea! I was in Japan in Januaryand got hooked on fukamushi green tea! This is the best of the several I tried! And thanks for your prompt shipping! We'll definitely be back for more!
Just as delicious as Gyokuro!
As a regular coffee drinker I'm pretty new to loose leaf tea. I don't know how I found Ocha exactly, but I was very happy with my first cup. I was looking for a simple, great tea and this is invigorating and refreshing. I was nervous about green tea in general after having some earthy, bitter ones from local coffee places. I suppose they brew it too hot or just don't have great leaves.
The absolute treat for any Japanese green tea lovers.
