It's hard not to focus on the color of this most brilliantly green of teas. But you'd recognize the grassy flavor even in the dark. Not as funky as the Yutaka Midori, this is my all-around favorite tea.

Delicious when brewed at right temperature. Remember to warm up the tea pot, too.

This is a beautiful deep steamed green tea. Lots of tiny particles which I love. I am reviewing the 2016 harvest in April/May 2017 so it's a full year old and still amazing. Rich grassy flavor, lots of umami, really good.

This is the first fukamushi tea I have tried. I love the deep green color, especially of the second brew!
However, going by flavor, I don't think I am much of a fukamushi-person. The flavor is mildly green (as you may expect from a fukamushi, from what I understand). I like a tea with some more body, like kariganes.
However, I do think it has a nice typical flavor profile that will find appreciation from deep steamed tea aficionados.

Probably one of the best teas available, especially if you, like me, are an absolute fanatic of deep steamed green tea (fukamushi). I have been buying this tea for many years and the quality and freshness has always been impeccable.

This is my favorite green tea from any country, strain, or preparation. I drink this everyday. Here is how I prepare the tea: one heaping teaspoon (basically two leveled teaspoons if you crushed the leaves). At 170F, with about 8oz of water--about a cup--first brew: 1:20sec; second brew: 40 sec; third brew: 1:30. I can always get the first and second brews with the green, floral, grassy taste with lots of umami flavor. The third draw is just so so unless you brew all three draws in a short time span, such as 30 minutes. Sometimes I have even brewed the first draw at 40sec and gotten excellent results but I had to increase the amount of leaves. Then draw 2 is 20 secs and I can't get a third.

A very good fukamushi-cha. Make sure that you use a tea pot designed for deep steamed tea and that you make that second infusion! I agree with a previous reviewer--try brewing the first infusion for about 45 seconds at about 160-165 F and go up from there.
