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.

Ocha & Co. Organic Japanese Fukamushi Sencha Green Tea
I love this green tea! I use it as my daily tea, and find it to be pretty affordable as well. It’s a beautiful bright green color, which shows that it’s high quality. Really enjoying this tea and looking forward to trying more from Ocha!
I’ve was introduced to this tea in Ueno district of Tokyo years ago and find the Ocha Organic Fukamushi Green tea to have ideal taste profiles that go nicely into a 3rd brewing. Make sure you try the lower temperatures of heated water and steep accordingly. This is my 3rd purchase and I would recommend this green tea. Use a good quality water and the flavor is exceptional. Small ceramic cup would complete the picture. This tea is probably better than 99% of the green tea they serve at Japanese restaurants in the US.
I normally get the organic Fukamushicha, I accidentally got the more common variation this time.
Drinking it is the experience of a winter day, sitting next to a warm fire with a purring cat. It is simply wonderful.
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.
