Grown by Yoshiyuki Tamura in Kawane, Shizuoka, this fukamushi sencha is bursting with vibrant flavours (and colour!) with a refreshing grassy endnote without shying away from “traditional” Japanese green tea characteristics.
“Fukamushi” means “deep steam” and it is a processing technique where fresh tea leaves are steamed longer after harvest than the normal 30-40 seconds. This technique originates from Shizuoka where this tea was grown and processed. Fukamushi sencha really brings out the full flavour, aroma and colour of the tea leaves.
Please note that the fukamushi process yields tea leaves that are more broken and “rough” looking than other Makijima sencha products.
