From an organic culture on Kyushu Island, this tea is produced by pan-fried method (kamairi), instead of the conventional Japanese method of steaming. This style of transformation gives a particular balance between bitterness and sweetness, exempt from the typical astringency found in Sencha style teas.
Sencha Fukamushi Sakimidori
Here is a green tea from Shizuoka in Japan, from a cultivar we are very fond of, the Sakimidori.
Its opaque and dark green liquor, typical of the fukamushi style, will appeal to lovers of dense chlorophyll teas. Silky and full, it also boasts aromas of fresh grass, cherries and flowers. A rich tea with a surprising smoothness in the mouth!
