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.

    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.

    An excellent deep-steamed tea, worth the price, and it's almost impossible to get a tea like it in the U.S.

    FWIW, to any considering buying from this site for the first time, I've never had any problems with the cheaper shipping options, despite the lack of tracking.

    Delicious., high quality Sencha. Subsequent infusions are great, I use up to 3. Highly recommend.

    This a good tea.
    I enjoyed the flavor. It had a wonderful green color. I got 3 good steepings out of each portion of leaves, with the second steeping being the best. I used it to introduce my coworkers to sencha and everyone loved it.

    The directions on the bag seemed less precise than I was used to with sencha so I consulted some tea experts on a web site.

    I used 4gram of leaves per 8 ounces of water at 145F for each steeping. 1 minute each for the 1st steepings. 5 minutes for the last steeping.

    This tea is a bit better than the Oku midori to me. It is very high quality. First steeping I make it at 176 degrees for about 80 seconds. Second steeping at same temp. but I pour water in the pot then pour to my cup. Third steeping lasts about a minute. Very relaxing, deep hitting. The amount you use really changes the pot. Using a small amount does the trick, too much is makes it an odd pot. Since it is deep steamed too much leaf can make it seem very heavy and thick.

    Do you have test results for radioactivity contamination of any tea you sell? I have stopped buying Japanese tea but want to start drinking it again but without confidence in radioactive cesium in the tea, I cannot.

    We used to post those certificates for years but every result was virtually zero so we eventually quit posting them. We sell almost 100 different green teas, it was laborious and unreasonable to continue posting lab certificates when every result was virtually zero. The teas are still tested by the growers as well as the Japanese government but we don't post results anymore it's unnecessary - there is no radiation concern with Japanese tea.
