Product Description

The steaming of leaves is integral to the process of tea making. Fukamushi, or “Deep-steamed” sencha, is steamed 2-3 times longer than regular tea, giving it a more robust flavor and a deeper color than normal sencha. The taste itself is mellow, smooth, and somewhat grassy, with a delicious, refreshing aroma.

Because of the additional steaming, vitamins and antioxidants in the tea leaves infuse more readily into the water, making Fukamushi sencha even healthier than regular sencha. A recommended choice!

Brewing Method

Quantity
Regular 1 teaspoon for every 1/2 cup of water.

Steeping
Steeped 2 to 3 minutes.

Temperature
Hot water at 70°C to 80°C (160°F to 180°F). It is a good practice to pre-heat cup or pot for a few minutes before steeping tea leaves.

  3. Deep and Strong taste 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Mar 2013

    Unbelievably strong and deep taste. Too bitter for my taste, but I guess that's why it is "Fukamushi".


  4. Shattered leaves 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jan 2013

    The taste is very good, no doubt about that. But the picture above is very misleading. There were no nice tea leaves in the pack I got, just shattered "tea dust". I was very disappointed by this as it is impossible to brew the tea properly due to this.
    The same holds for the Gyokuro I got. From what I ordered only the Hagiri Fuji Sencha had normal leaves.
    Another disappointment was complete ignorance from the seller after sending them a complaint.
