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!

Fantastic tea, one of the best Japanese green teas (for my taste). Very intense, with strong grassy, floral/fruity and umami notes. Thick, cloudy, vibrant green liquid (fukamushi style). For first steep, I usually use 5 grams of tea in 60 deg C water for 40 seconds. 20 - 25 seconds for the second steep, 45 - 50 for third.

Advantages: Intense flavours, incredible green colour, makes my whole body feel invigorated

Disadvantages: None really... I guess it could be a little cheaper :)

This is the first fukamushi I have tried and I am most definitely not disappointing! This tea is simply delicious!

First infushion at 77 Celcius for 45 seconds is perfect. Second infusion 20 seconds at same temperature.

When they say fukamushi has small particles, they mean it. If you don't like small bits in your tea, get the appropriate teapot to brew it in. Personally, I just let it sit for a moment and all the particles sink to the bottom.

Give this one a try!

Advantages: Very delicious and easy to brew.

Disadvantages: Small particles, but that's just part of fukamushi.

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!
