Organic Fukamushi Sencha
Deep Steamed Japanese Green Tea
Organic Certified by JAS/OCIA/USDA
Organic Fukamishi (Deep Stamed) Sencha tea leaves possess a wonderful fragrance upon opening the package. The first infusion brings forth a deeply rich colored liquid that that offers a very well rounded, smooth, mellow and rich taste.
One cupful invariably leads to another along with thoughtful contemplation of the tea's complex nature. A light astringency slightly increases as the liquid cools. The second steeping produces a little darker liquid that tastes much the same as the first, but is slightly sweeter.
This organic green tea from the Chiran area richly deserves to be tasted by one and all as a true example of Japanese green tea at its finest. Our Premium Deep Steamed Organic Sencha has been produced according to the strict guidelines of the JAS (Japan Agricultural Standard) and USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) and is certified organic.

What is deep steamed tea? (FukamushiCha)
Deep steamed tea is steamed a minute longer than your regular Japanese green tea. It sounds simple, but it isn’t that simple. Deep steaming requires great skill and knowledge. Not many Japanese tea companies are experts in this. This is due to the tricky and rigorous methods involved in deep steaming. Our green tea supplier has immense knowledge and skill in deep steaming. Hence, we serve you only the superior quality deep steamed green tea.
What’s so special about deep steamed tea?
When deep steamed, the tea leaves lose their leaf shape. The leaves separate and result in a comparatively powdery consistency. When you brew deep steamed tea, you’ll get a thicker, richer, darker green, green tea. The wet leaves of deep steamed green tea may appear mushy. Don’t worry, this appearance doesn’t affect the taste and the nutritional value. It’s one of the advantages of being deep steamed. It’s our pleasure to bring you the deep flavor of deep steamed Japanese green tea.
