Wow, this was exactly one cup’s worth in a rusted mint tin from…maybe two years ago? Still tastes savory for Fukamushi in four ounces of water. Tough stuff!

“ I love this tea, it is my favourite type of green tea and as the tasting note says it hasn´t got any bitterness.” Read full tasting note
This deep-steamed type of sencha, known as “fukamushicha,” was developed about 30 years ago and is rarely seen outside of Japan. Fukamushi Senchha is steamed 2–3 times longer than Asamushi Sencha. The deep steaming of tealeaves creates a vivid green, opaque infusion that is strong and full-bodied without bitterness. Rishi’s signature deep-steamed sencha hails from Kagoshima and is made from the unique Asatsuyu tea bush that is prized for its low bitterness, deep green character and rich, milky flavors.
The majority of our teas are organic and Fair Trade Certified. In 2009, we won 11 First Place Awards for Best Tea, almost double that of any competitor. Tea is our passion, it’s what we do best. We’re honored to share some of our favorite teas with you.

This tea smells grassy, nutty and strangely, a little bit like cigarette smoke. It’s smooth and grassy in flavor. I wish I tasted more of the milky note the description mentions. I’m always after that milky taste in teas!I don’t think there is anything very unique or special about this tea, but it’s a nice end to the day, especially after having so many Easter treats!
Thank you to Tommy the Toad for a sample.
