FUKAMUSHI SHIZUOKA 2017 GREEN TEA

$ 10.00

Description

SPRING 2017 HARVEST - Fukamushi Shizuoka is a limited-quantity, spring harvest tea from Shizuoka, Japan. The glistening jade leaves of this rare tea are the first bloom of the season, and are handpicked, deep-steamed, broken and then steamed again and then air-shipped to us only once each year. However, what makes Fukamushi Shizuoka truly great (and one of our staff favorites) is its aroma and flavor. The spear-like leaves of Fukamushi Sencha herald foresty pine aromas that are shot through with a bright hint of citrus. The envy-green brew is a juxtaposition of thick, bold iodine minerality and marine notes with a gentle, underlying, buttery sweetness. The robust, orange-pith astringency fades with notes of roasted nuts and coriander and deep, persistent, green flavors of sweet grasses in the aftertaste. Brew with care; as if possessed by a fickle deity, this tea will reward proper brewing with sublime flavors and punish careless over-steepers with an unappealingly bitter brew.

Your tea is hand packed in a resealable pouch at no additional charge. For an additional $5 you can select our new Black Triangle Signature Canister.
