A sweet and mellow first harvest Japanese Sencha from Kyoto Prefecture prepared in the Fukamishi style, which means that the leaves are steamed slightly longer than a traditional Sencha, which brings out more of natural sweetness from the leaves.
Sencha Fukamushi is a perfect starting place for people new to Japanese teas, as well as a favourite of experienced tea drinkers. It is simple and easy to prepare in either the traditional style using small amounts of water or larger cups more common in the West. Fukamushi Sencha also makes a delightful iced tea.
Measure 1 heaped tsp per cup (250ml), add 75-85° water, infuse for three minutes.
