Our Sencha Fukamushi Super Premium's tea leaves are "Saemidori" Breed. Though the "Saemidori" Breed has a noble sweet taste that is called 'Natural Gyokuro', it is rarely grown because it is a rare breed which is difficult to grow and requires high-maintenance.
We have finished these "Saemidori" breed tea leaves with Fukamushi, in order to bring out the maximum noble sweet taste of the "Saemidori" Breed.
The tea leaves used to make Sencha Fukamushi Super Premium are picked when the sprouts are small and soft and not fully-grown; when the tea tree has only three sprouts.
These "Saemidori" Breed tea leaves are picked when younger, and finished with Fukamushi in order to bring out its unique features, so that our Sencha Fukamushi Super Premium has a noble and mellow sweet taste, much like Gyokuro, and a refreshing aroma that unlike Gyokuro, is a feature of Sencha.
Even in Japan, tea leaves of this quality are difficult to find, so we are very pleased to be able to offer you Sencha Fukamushi Super Premium. We would like you to enjoy the unique mellow taste and excellent aroma that no other teas consistently have.
