(Features of Fukamushi Sencha)
Most harvested tea leaves are steamed for thirty seconds. This is the usual traditional Uji/Kyoto style. However one variety, ‘Fukamushi’ Sencha, is steamed for forty-five to sixty seconds. ‘Fukamushi’ means ‘to steam heavily.’ ‘Fukamushi’ Sencha is more easily extracted than other teas, so it takes less time to brew. It produces a light green color, unlike Basic Sencha’s light yellow color. Also ‘Fukamushi’ Sencha has a more mellow taste than Basic Sencha. ‘Fukamushi’ Sencha is also suitable for Iced Sencha because it’s quickly and easily extracted in hot or cold water and always makes a flavorful cup of tea.
And the nutritious constituent of tea leaves are easily extracted into cups.
Fukamushi Sencha is brewed in a shorter time than standard steamed Sencha (finished in the traditional Uji/Kyoto style). For a really tasty cup of tea, brew Fukamushi Sencha for 40 seconds. If you brew for longer time, unfortunately you feel a little bitter taste
