Begin your journey into the world of deep steamed teas with the right tools. With this Fukamushi teapot, not only will you have a richer tasting experience, you will also have an easier time pouring the tea into the glass.
Specially designed to avoid clogging when you pour Fukamushi teas! This special teapot has a built-in cylindrical metal strainer so that the water can move around the tea leaves instead of clogging. Deep steamed teas are beautifully smooth and sweet, but they have finer leaf particles that can clog the filters of traditional teapots.
This high-quality clay teapot is made in Japan from smooth, oxidized black clay. The clay of this teapot can even accentuate the savory flavors of the tea, and add a sligt minerality to them. Just like with Gyokuro, Fukamushi teas can also develop a stronger savory note, and this teapot allows you to realize the full potential of these special deep steamed teas.
Fukamushicha Yamaga 100g
Fukamushicha, otherwise known as a "deep steamed tea" has a wonderful flavor that is truly unique. Due to the extra steaming, the tea takes on a darker hue of green and a more powerful vegetal flavor. The umami note you experience is similar to that of a Gyokuro, and the astringency you might find in a Shincha. The tea is made by blending the Yabukita cultivar with the Asatsuyu. What makes the Yamaga unique is that it also takes on a nice fruity flavor, similar to that of lychee berry. You may also notice a hint of papaya and making as well. These fruity notes are particularly prevalent when the tea is brewed cold.
The smell of the dried leaves is so deep, it almost has a fruity fragrance to it. This is one of the Japanese green teas that everyone should try at least once!
