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, but 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.
Kasugaen Asatsuyu Sencha 100g
This is a sweet deep steamed sencha from southern Japan. The first steeping is very light and sweet, with a pleasant note of edamame towards the end. The second steeping becomes more bold and full-bodied, with the sweet corn note from the first steeping subsiding and the edamame note beginning to develop more and more. From steeping to steeping, the tea develops more of a vegetal flavor and less of a sweetness. This change leads to a tasting experience that evolves from the first steeping to the third, creating 3 entirely unique cups of tea. You can also continue to brew the tea longer without it losing flavor. Even after the 5th steeping you will notice a vibrant green color and a full-bodied flavor to the tea.
Steeping: 60 degrees C/ 140 degrees F for 45-60 seconds. Can be steeped up to 6 times at 20 seconds each
Contains 1 clay teapot and 100 grams of loose leaf green tea
