About Fukumidori Sencha | ふくみどり煎茶

Description: Fukumidori, like all the teas made by this producer, is native to Saitama prefecture. Fukumidori has a wonderful freshness, deep color and surprisingly buoyant mouthfeel. A classic example of the style of teas made famous in Sayama. This medium steamed Sencha undergoes an intentional withering prior to processing. The fresh leaves are exposed to UV light light creating a unique a unique floral undertone. An exceptionally fresh Sencha with intense aromatics

What is so special about this tea? An incredibly unique tea made by an equally unique producer. The Sayama area lies within Saitama prefecture, just west of Tokyo. Made from entirely from the Fukumidori cultivar, a varietal native to the area. The producer, Mr. Hiruma is somewhat of a legend. He is best known for his radical micro-oxidizing technique.

Recommended for: This is a refreshing Sencha that is quite different than our Kyushu offerings. It has an incredible aroma and full bodied profile. Use a little less leaf and a shorter brew time - great for an afternoon pick-me-up.
