Fukamushi Sencha 4-Pack
Nuruki Shincha 100g
The Sencha Shincha Nuruki tea comes from the South of Japan on the island of Kyushu. Shincha is one of the most prized teas in Japan because it is made from the very top leaves of the tea plant and it is the first tea to be harvested. This makes the tea not only of exceptionally high quality, but also it is the first tea available from each harvest. As a result, people in Japan wait all year to try this very special tea. The Shincha from Nuruki is incredibly sweet and smooth. The liquor is a beautiful jade green color and it is quite dense with a thick mouthfeel. This tea transforms into a light sweet corn note in the second and third brewing, and it really is a light, sweet and enjoyable tea for both beginners and tea masters alike.
Fukamushi Yamaga 100g
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.
Murasaki Sencha 100g
This beautiful deep green Fukamushi Sencha brings a powerful sweet and hearty flavor to the palate. This tea is strong and full-bodied without lingering on the side of astringency or bitterness. Because this is a deep steamed tea, the liquid becomes a dark cloudy green color with a smoother and milder taste. The tea also picks up a slight fruitiness and sweetness to it. Fukamushi teas are also great as a cold brew, creating a pleasant fruity infusion that is perfect to enjoy outside.
Steeping: 60 degrees C/ 140 degrees F for 45-60 seconds. Can be steeped up to 6 times at 20 seconds each
Zenkouen Superior Sencha 100g
As a drier tea, this Sencha begins with a mild, slight cereal notes, and finishes with a bit of citrus, lemongrass and straw. The tea is dry and slightly astringent, without being bitter. You may notice a tiny bit of puckering on your palate not detracting from the drinkability of the tea, but rather enhancing it. The finish in the first steeping is light and mouthwatering, without lingering much more than 5-10 seconds. The mouthfeel of this tea is on the thinner side.
Contains 4 100 gram packs of loose leaf green tea
