Sencha Fukamushi Premium (100g/3.53oz)

Review Since summer is almost over, I feel it's time to review one of my favourite summertime teas. It gets so hot sometimes that hot tea just won't do. That's when I turn to fukamashi. I find it brews the nicest with cold water and it refreshes the palette on a hot day.

The premium is a nice balance for budget and volume. I like to put 4 scoops into a mesh filter, cover it with a litre of cold water, and leave it in the fridge over night. Then I add anywhere between a third to a half of lemon. I pour a small amount of the cold tea into a glass, add two teaspoons of honey, mix it well; then pour it back into the pitcher. Let it sit for another hour to fully blend, and enjoy it for the rest of the day.

Sometimes I add stevia leaves if I'm offering it to a friend who doesn't appreciate the subtle blend of flavours, but if your an experienced green tea drinker who loves citrus like I do, you may find that only a small amount of honey is all it needs to make it "summery."

I definitely recommend experimenting with this tea. It's very versatile, and you may find several different ways to enjoy it.
Very bad...Bad...Very bad...Ordinary...Good... 5 of 5 Stars!
