Sencha Fukamushi

Origin:Shizuoka, Japan


Young spring and early summer leaves come together to make Japan's most traditional loose leaf tea; sencha. Our Sencha is steamed in the Fukamushi, or "deep-steamed" style characteristic of southern Shizuoka, and then finished with a high roasting; the specialty of the Sugimoto family. The high heat finishing roast brings out a rich aroma and lingering umami finish that is consistent even after multiple steepings.

Vibrant Green Tea

I love all green tea, but for several years have especially loved Sencha. I get several steepings from the Fukamushi and enjoy it all day. The first steeping is always vibrant, a bit astringent, and tastes so good. The following steepings also hold up very well. I highly recommend all of Sugimoto Senchas.

Sencha Fukamushi

The best loose leaf green tea. Have been a big fan of Sugimoto’s Fukamushi style Sencha for more than five years. Truly, every experience I’ve had with this particular green tea, has been spectacular. If you are a fan of green tea and prefer it as a loose leaf than in a tea bag. Look no further, you’ve arrived.

Sencha Fukamushi

Being Japanese (all my life!), I’ve been drinking tea for many years. I’ve had many types of tea over the years, good and bad.
I enjoy my tea, but I’m a practical person. My wife drinks this SF tea daily, I drink it 3-4 times/week.
This tea from Sugimoto, for me, strikes an excellent balance of flavor, aroma and richness vs cost. We enjoy it often and can afford to do so.
Recommend highly!
