A sweet and mellow first harvest Japanese Sencha from Kyoto Prefecture prepared in the Fukamishi style, which means that the leaves are steamed slightly longer that a traditional Sencha, which brings out more of a natural sweetness fom the leaves.
Sencha Fukamushi is a perfect starting place for pepe new to Japanese teas, as well as favourite of experienced tea drinkers. It is simple and easy to prepeare in either the tradional style using small amounts of water, or larger cups more common in the West. Fukamushi Sencha also makes a delightful iced tea.

Went to Manchester coffee festival and met the team of Bohea Teas, and can just say how nice and knowledgeable they were. Bought some peppermint and Gui fei which were both some of best I have tried. Bought this sencha online and really enjoyed it.
My favourite green tea, ichibancha sencha reminds me of my days spent in north east Asia. Refreshing and soothing in equal measure, this is my go-to morning tea - thanks to its soft sweetness infused with a smokey, moreish after taste.
As a green tea lover, I can't fault this. Delicious from the very first brew, never too sweet, and developing in complexity with each subsequent brew. I could quite happily drink this all day, every day
