Japanese Fukamushi Sencha
Fukamushi Sencha means “deep steam” sencha and I totally love the taste difference in this tea. Sencha is the most commonly consumed tea in Japan and this particular one is full of rich flavor–it easily stands up to two steeps. Personally I prefer the first steep of my green teas because I think most of the L-theanine comes out in the first steep and I like the sweet flavor it imparts.
Steeping this tea at 170F brings out the savory, delightfully grassy character of the tea.
