From the first harvest, a very special sencha from Kagoshima prefecture located at the southern tip of Japan. Undoubtedly one of our most most popular green teas, this item is definitely a favorite with green tea connoisseurs. Yutaka Midori is an exceptionally "green" green tea. We urge you to compare this sencha against any of the others available on the internet for it's nice emerald green color, wonderful aroma, and excellent taste. Try some today!

Available in 100 gram packages.

This was my first fukamushi and I absolutely love it! I've always gotten asamushi and chumushi before and for whatever reason I had never tried a deep steamed tea. I sadly do not have a kyusu made specifically for fukamushis, but the extra tea particles that come through my clay screen are completely okay with me. All I know is that this sencha is top quality and delicious. I could seriously drink it all day and not get tired of it. Please buy this!

This was my favorite tea, of three from here I tried..

But in fairness was about equal, although very different from the expensive gyokuro ($58).

I did not feel that this tea is extra sensitive to steeping too long (as someone said).. But I am steeping at 170F.. I am just now having the last hit from this bag..

For comparison purposes, Im used to fine senchas (similar to fukamushi).

I tried the shincha first time (version of fukamushi).. Found it too harsh for my sensitive stomach (letting it age a bit.. hopefully since I let air in, it will still me OK).. I believe tea is hard on stomachs in general (if you are sensitive), but this tea seemed less so..

Advantages: Low to mid priced, yet amazing tea IMHO.

This is definitely a great tasting tea. I was previously hooked on gyokuro from Teavana, but realized their teas weren't all that. I've never tried sencha, so trying this was the best thing I've done. I'm officially in love with this tea now! :) Thanks O-cha!

Advantages: Clean, smooth, vegetal flavor, very nice aroma

Disadvantages: None
