Kakegawa Fukamushi Sencha (Loose - 100 g)
This is a second flush sencha tea that is grown in the Kakegawa region of Shizuoka. Bold green color with a refreshing grassy taste, a mellow bitterness and a dry, clean aftertaste. Fukamushi means a longer steaming that fragments the tea leaves and shortens steeping time compared to most sencha.
