From Tea Palace

Sencha Fukuyu is grown exclusively on the slopes of Mount Fuji, giving a tea with a deliciously light, slightly sharp taste. Japanese speciality green teas are rare, as demand from the Japanese themselves means that very little Japanese tea is available for export.

Also delicious as an Iced Tea – try blending with fresh pomegranate juice

I do like this Sencha – it’s nice and light and flowery, and when I can’t decide what to have and all the flavours in my Mariage Freres teas are too much for my poor brain to cope with, I can grab this tin of tea and go for it.
Brewing etc?
I put about 1-2 desert spoons in a six cup pot, add water that is off the boil, and steep for about 2-3mins, or until the leaves have all expanded and opened but still leaving enough freshness for the next steeping to be just as nice.
Taste/Flavours etc?
It’s very flowery, with a hint of woody/grassiness, but not with that “vegetal” feeling one can get from some Senchas, and it doesn’t feel bitter at all. I prefer this one late morning or afternoon, as being quite light, I prefer something with more “meat” to it first thing in the morning with breakfast, and I prefer something a bit softer/smoother/creamier in the evening before bed.
Anything else?
At present, this is my favourite Sencha, and it’s the only one I currently own, but have had a few samples from Grinnyguy of other senchas – one was a Fukuyu and the other was a woody one.I would say this one was quite “middle of the road” and therefore likeable and easily brewed by anyone – it’s not as much of an acquired taste as one might find with certain Senchas, Oolongs or greens. I would recommend this to anyone newer to Sencha as a good pace to start – and it’s robust enough that you can’t go wrong. This is a good tea to have when working, as you just sit with the pot next to you and a smaller china cup and just keep refilling until all gone, and it’s good for concentrating and focussing – at least I find!!
