      Fukamushi Sencha Kaoru

      Introducing the exquisite Fukamushi Sencha "Kaoru," a premier, first flush green tea from the fertile Makinohara district of Shizuoka Prefecture. Crafted from 100% Yabukita leaves, this tea captures the essence of spring with its young, vibrant leaves. "Kaoru" is known for its exceptionally deep green hue and thick consistency, offering an intense, grassy aroma that surpasses typical deep-steamed teas.

      The flavor of "Kaoru" is rich and enduring, lingering on your palate long after your last sip, making each cup a memorable experience. Brewing is simple, though for optimal results, we recommend using a teapot designed for fukamushi-cha to fully appreciate its depth. To preserve the perfect balance of its flavors, ensure the brewing water is not too hot and the steeping time is just right.

      Packaged in nitrogen-filled bags to maintain its pristine freshness, "Kaoru" is available in 100-gram packages. Prepare yourself for an unparalleled tea experience with each brew of Fukamushi Sencha "Kaoru."

        Is this tea a shincha?

        Shincha doesn't usually come out each year until late April or early May so currently, this tea is not shincha.

        What are your recommendations for the temperature for the second infusion?

        The same temperature as your brew temperature. Just vary the brew time by adding 30 seconds per infusion.

        I tried this tea years ago, but can't remember how it was. Decided to try it again for 2019 and I've wondered if they mixed in the wrong tea in this bag, just because of how underwhelming it has been. I've tried hotter temperatures/less brew time, lower temperatures/longer brew time and everything in between. I was able to get a somewhat "okay" taste from it but for the price it's been bad value, for me. It's not too astringent or anything, but just lacks flavor period. I've tried a lot of teas on here and this is one I won't take the risk of getting again.

        Teas change from year to year depending on the growing conditions. However, this year's tea is from the same grower as always.

        My first brew of this tea, I was very disappointed. It was quite bitter.

        I made it again, more careful to use cooler water. I don't have a formal yuzamashi, but I used 175 degree water from my zojirushi to an empty tea pot, then poured the water into my sencha pot.

        I brewed right at 45 seconds, and the result was incredible. A delicate and grassy tea with not even a hint of bitterness.

        I highly recommend this tea, but adjust your brewing accordingly.

        Very pleasant grassy flavor. This is the first tea I've purchased from o-cha but it won't be the last!! I love this tea and will definitely be buying it again. It made it to Texas in 6 days!

        I love the deep grassy taste of this tea. I get this tea frequently and I am never disappointed in the morning when I have my first cup of tea.

        Has a very rich emerald color, and is great for up to 3 resteeps.

        My favourite daily tea at the moment! Love the dark, grassiness of this one. Very green, very drinkable.

        I filtered the first infusion which gave a more yellow colour. For the second infusion I did not filter it and it came out much more green. If you want the rich green colour, I would avoid using a very fine mesh filter.

        The taste was like buttered asparagus and rice crackers. There is a slight bitterness and astringency that tickles the mouth without leaving it feeling too dry. There is a slight herbaceous and gently-bitter minty aftertaste.

        It was good for about 4 infusions.

        Delicious, a bit tangy, and rich beautiful color. I love this tea.
