Sencha Fukamushi Green Tea

Description

Description

When tea leaves are harvested in Japan they go through a very precise steaming process to ensure the aroma and flavour can be released when it arrives in your mug or tea pot. Sencha Fukamushi is a Premium tea which goes through a deeper phase of steaming than most other types of tea. This is where it gets its name ‘Fukamushi’ referring to the deep steaming process, whereas Chumushi tea is produced with medium steaming and for Asamushi tea steaming is light. The deep steaming phase helps to further reduce the tea leaf’s vegetal qualities while further softening and sweetening its taste.

Sencha Fukamushi is one of the most popular types of tea in Japan. This is high praise indeed coming from the land where tea culture originated. The deep steaming that goes into producing Sencha Fukamushi Premium gives it a richness and buttery smoothness which sets it apart from most other green teas.

Sencha Fukamushi Premium is harvested from young small sized shoots, which are plucked early. Although this means a lower yield than if the plant was left to grow, plucking the tea shoots early helps to give Sencha Fukamushi Premium its distinctive aroma.  A small quantity of stem is also added to the harvested leaves to add an extra layer of sweetness to this soft flavoured green tea.
