Ryu-Mei Premium Organic Sencha is maximum quality Sencha! While Sencha normally isn’t gathered during the first harvest (which is traditionally devoted to Gyokuro, Matcha, and Shincha), our farmers have set aside a batch especially for the production of Sencha of the highest grade!
Consumers will find this tea to have a uniquely delicious, thick aroma and a lovely grassy taste, to say nothing of the enormous health benefits that are associated with first harvest tea leaves. Full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, this premium version of a classic is one of our bestsellers!
“Fukamushi” literally means “Deep Steam” in Japanese, referring to the unique way this form of Sencha is made. Fukamushi Sencha is steamed anywhere from two to three times longer than regular Sencha—this makes the tea leaves coarser, and strengthens the flavor, while keeping it pleasantly mellow. Fukamushi Sencha has an intense, grassy taste, as well as a pleasant aroma.
