From Den's Tea

Very traditional Fukamushi-Sencha from one of the old Fukamushi producing cities, Kakegawa. Tea leaves are carefully deep steamed to make the flavor mild and aromatic. Also this Fukamushi Sencha is naturally grown under strict control of NOP (National Organic Program). The result is a gift from mother nature.

Origin: Kakegawa, Shizuoka
Harvest: First Flush
Species: Yabukita

I needed a little break after drinking new black teas all day! This sample is from KiwiDelight. I checked the Den’s website to see what exactly fukamushi sencha is. Turns out it just means that this is a deeply steamed sencha!

The aroma is very mild and sweetly vegetal with a little bit of wet grass. This is definitely the most seaweedy tasting tea I’ve had yet. And I don’t necessarily mean that as a bad thing! The primary taste is definitely seaweed, but there are also spinach and grass notes common among most senchas I’ve had. The flavor is quite mild, which I wouldn’t expect from something “deeply” steamed. I guess it has the opposite effect of what I would assume! Not to be confused with shaded sencha! :) Tasty, but not my favorite sencha ever.

It was definitely exactly what I needed after all that tasting and thinking earlier! :) Sencha is such a nice refresher, I definitely need to find my favorite and keep it in stock.

Exactly! It’s nice, easy to drink, flavorful but not overwhelming. I need to do the same.

Ooh, I just got a sample of this today, I need to try it. I don’t know if I’ve actually tasted seaweed in a tea before, but it sounds like a note I would enjoy.

Thanks to KiwiDelight for a sample of this tea!

This is some decent sencha! Nicely sweet and vegetal, like a good sencha should be. Mild and gentle flavor :)

Yum!
