      Deep Steamed Oku Midori Sencha

      Deep Steamed Oku Midori - Those of you who know what this is will be quite happy to know that this year we were able to procure this deep steamed, grassy, umami-bomb of a green tea.  For a myriad of reasons, this has been one of the more harder to obtain green teas for us over the years. We didn't have it at all in 2022 and nearly didn't get it again this year. But alas, this year we pushed it and made it happen.

      From Kagoshima, an extremely flavorful, full of umami,  deep steamed green tea.  The high quality of this Oku Midori fukamushi green tea is obvious from the first sip. It has a very beautiful emerald green color to it and strong aroma. Harvested from the first round of young spring leaves. Our personal opinion - This is probably one of the all around best green teas you will ever drink. Nitrogen flushed and vacuum packaged, as fresh of a green tea as you can get. 

      We're not putting it into the "shincha" category because it's already June.  However, know that this is a very fresh, first harvest green tea from 2023.

      Our price includes 100 grams of tea per package.

        I received this new Oku Midori sencha just as I was leaving for NY State. I used the municiple, country water where I stayed and I have to say it was excellent. I was very impressed. However upon returning to New Jersey I couldn’t duplicate the taste. I tried many bottled water brands, some tasted better than others but not like that country water. That said, along with all the other parameters for making good tea, water is critical.
