Fukamushi Sencha Kaoru

Score: 4.91. Votes: 11

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.

    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.

    This tea strikes me as middle-of-the-road. It feels like a higher-quality version of sencha I've been served at restaurants in Japan—inoffensive, easy to like, but doesn't have any standout qualities. A good daily brew at a good price.

    This Fukamushi Sencha is delightful. It brews a deep green and has a wonderful, "grassy" flavor. It is well worth trying for the serious Japanese green tea lover. Pay attention to the brewing instructions. Using water that is too hot, or brewing for too long can result in a beverage that is slightly bitter.

    I've been sampling senchas for a few months now and this is my favorite so far. I enjoy the fragrance, flavor and especially the deep green color. What a great way to start the day!
