Deep Steamed Green Tea

fukamushi deep steamed green teaFukamushi Sencha -The green teas in this category, known in Japanese as "fukamushi-cha", or deep steamed green tea, are steamed for a longer period of time than your typical sencha. The period in which any green tea is steamed depends on various characteristics, where it was grown, elevation, etc., and like light steamed green tea, not all green teas are suitable for deep steaming.

  • Yutaka Midori Sencha Madoka

    • Unique!

    From the first harvest, Kagoshima Sencha Yutaka Midori "Madoka" is a very special sencha from Kagoshima prefecture located at the southern tip of Japan. Madoka is quite similar to our original Yutaka Midori but is a bit less grassy, has a bit less steaming, and a bit more astringency, which means it probably also packs a bit more catechin punch. Brew with a bit more caution by paying particular attention to brew temperature and brew time.  Try some today!

    Available in 100 gram packages.

    From Shizuoka, a unique breed of Japanese green tea grown organically. A first rate, first harvest, deep steamed green tea, the high quality is obvious from the first sip.

Harvested from the first round of young spring leaves, it is certified organic. Nitrogen flushed and vacuum packaged, as fresh of an organic green tea as you can get.

Deep steamed green tea like fukamushi sencha will usually have a very fine, almost dust-like look to it - beginners often misinterpret this to mean an inferior tea which it is not. When brewed fukamushi sencha has a somewhat cloudy appearance, a rich and bold taste, and an usually a darker, greener color. As the leaf particles of fukamushi-cha are very fine, it can clog small filters. We recommend your fukamushi teapot have a fine stainless mesh infuser screen which covers the inner spout, and that your teapot be tall, rather than wide (although you can still use most wide teapots with a stainless steel infuser screen.)  If you have never tried a deep steamed green tea, you will most likely be impressed with the vivid color and often bold taste, be sure to try one soon!
