A first rate, first flush green tea. Harvested from the first round of young spring leaves, this 100% Yabukita green tea comes from the famous Makinohara tea growing district in Shizuoka Prefecture. Very green and very thick. Fukamushi Sencha "Kaoru" has a somewhat more pronounced grassy aroma and taste compared with the average deep steamed green tea and the taste remains on the palate for an extended time.

An overall easy brewer (a teapot for fukuamushi-cha is recommended, however). Be sure to not brew too hot, for too long, or with too much leaf. As with all of our loose leaf green teas, freshly packaged in nitrogen filled bags.

Price shown includes 100 grams of tea per package.

    My favorite tea to enjoy especially in the winter. The aroma is strong and yet it has a pleasant amount of astringency. I really like the deep color. And it's easy to brew. It's is not too fine to be brewed in the black and green Tokoname teapot 16519 even though it is deep steamed. I'm looking forward to the new shincha already.

    This is one of my all time favorites because of its very grassy aroma and taste. For me, the grassier the flavor, the better I like it. I've found my perfect cup is when I use about 2.8 grams of Fukamushi Sencha Kaoru to 4 ounces of water at 175 degrees. The first brew is for about a minute and the second brew is 50 seconds. Everyone's taste is different, however. And remember, you will need a teapot that can strain out the fine particles of this deep-steamed variety.

    Excellent quality. I've been trying quite a lot different fukamushi senchas, but this became instantly my favourite. It has zesty grassy flavour with really mild roastiness and it leaves sweet and long lasting aftertaste. The flavour is strong without being overpowering. It steeps into bright green, cloudy tea. Beautiful tea with really good price.

    Perfect ration price/quality. Nice grassy aroma and green color make this tea favorite for me. Of course Sae Midori is more interesting tea, but this one is lovely everyday tea.

    I am a big Sencha green tea lover and O'Cha gives me the chance to experience different types of green tea from different Japanese area. The Fukamushi Sencha brings me back the Japan with his deep, rich flavor. One of my best!

    Fukamushi Sencha Kaoro was everything I was expecting and more. To start, I very much like the nitrogen sealed packaging the tea comes in, the graphic design being my favorite. The tea itself has a wonderful grassy aroma and flavor that you'd expect from an excellent fukamushi sencha. I would certainly buy this tea again, and recommend it to all of my friends.

    This is our current favorite - deep steamed, vibrant green, cloudy, and with a lovely "green" flavor and a hint of sweetness. My wife and I look forward to it daily - more than once! Delicious.

    I usually drink Yutaka Midori, but decided to give this one a try. I learned that I only needed one teaspoon for my pot rather than the usual 7 grams that the other senchas use. It's absolutely delightful, not as grassy as other greens, but more mellow. My husband, an avid coffee drinker, discovered this tea and says it gives him energy, so now I have to watch out for my green tea! It's in jeopardy! I think this one is now my new favorite. Thank you for great senchas.
