Shincha Fukamushi 2021 Limited Edition
Shincha Fukamushi Limited Edition, first harvest, deep steamed and shade grown, from Uji, Kyoto, Japan. A very expressive refreshing Sencha with a nice woolly sweetness and long aftertaste, beautiful bright emerald green color.
Shincha Fukamushi, shade grown. The varieties used are Yabukita, Okumidori and others. A very expressive refreshing Sencha with a nice woolly sweetness and long aftertaste, beautiful bright emerald green color. The tea liquid is light green, unlike most senchas, which yield a yellow tea liquid. The tea leaves of this sencha are shade grown for a period of about 5 to 7 days until just before harvest, to deepen the flavor and sweetness and strike a nice balance between the sweetness of shade grown tea and the freshness of sencha. The tea has been steamed longer than is usual with sencha, and is therefore also called Sencha Fukamushi, or deep steamed sencha; the result is that the tea releases its flavors very easily. This tea is very suitable for iced tea, because of its short steeping time, suitable for both 'cold brew' and 'hot brew'
