This first flush, extra-steamed styled Fukamushi Sencha tea comes from Shizouka, Japan, a region for tea growing. The extra steaming creates a less astringent cup with a robust marine flavor that mellows into a buttery vegetable.
Grown: Shizuoka, Japan
Dry Aroma: Sweet Corn with Hints of Berry Sweetness
Tasting Notes: Rich Vegetal and Umami Flavors
Brewing Suggestion: We like this tea best in a teapot when we used 1 teaspoon (2-3 grams) of tea first brewed for 30-45 seconds at 170 F. For gaiwan or shiboridashi brewing, we recommend sticking to 10-20 seconds.
Experiment and let us know how you liked it best!
