I had 2 cups of this tea this morning.
The first cup had a strong but pleasing astringency with a little sweetness underneath.
The 2nd cup had a lot less astringency, a little more sweetness, and was just yummy.
This is a good green tea.
I’m really looking forward to doing a big comparison soon, as I (by chance) have 5 Fukamushis to try!
-Ocha-Zanmai Fukamushi (Yamamotoyama) (originally was a 5oz bag)
-Fukamushi Sencha Special (Den’s Tea) (Sample only)
-Fukamushi Sencha Yame (Den’s Tea) (Sample only)
-Shincha Houryoku (Den’s Tea) (Brand new 2oz bag)
-Sencha (Sugimoto USA) (Sample only…they only make one kind of Sencha, and it is Fukamushi)
So I will try each one of these side by side, review and rank them! I just need to finish up some more of my other teas before I do this, since I don’t want to have too many open at once…
