About Deep Steamed Tea
During processing deep steamed tea is steamed approximately one minute longer than regular Japanese green tea. This sounds like a simple procedure, but actually it takes great skill and knowledge, such that most tea companies in Japan are unable to do it.
Deep steaming causes tea leaves to lose their "leaf" shape and become separated. That makes this tea appear more powdery than others. When brewed, it also results in the thick-rich and dark green color liquid.
