From Nio Teas

Fukamushicha, otherwise known as a “deep steamed tea” has a wonderful flavor that is truly unique. Due to the extra steaming, the tea takes on a darker hue of green and a more powerful vegetal flavor. The umami note you experience is similar to that of a Gyokuro, and the astringency you might find in a Shincha.

The smell of the dried leaves is so deep, it almost has a fruity fragrance to it. This is one of the Japanese green teas that everyone should try at least once!

Preparation: 60 degrees Celcius, 1-minute

can be used 3-4 times

Hmm, I have received a sample quite long ago. But week or so ago I have received an e-mail from the company how I liked it. Honestly I have to say I forgot a bit about this one and I can not remember it much. So I took it once again (few last leaves) and writing this review.

If you are reading this Will – it is because of you! (No offence)

On small resealable bag (as just a sample) there is 60°, 1-1.5 min. I had to buy a thermometer as I don´t want to ruin tea like this one. So, first steep – 1.25 min, 58°C or something, 1 tea spoon, 250 ml mug, ball strainer. (I need a proper teaware)

Appearance: cloudy, light green, with lots of “dust” of tea, I guess my strainer mesh is not fine enough. So it looks bit like matcha on the bottom.

Aroma and taste: Honestly, very complex. Spinach, flowers, lots of Umami. Aromas are almost same, but add a freshly cut grass. It also smells like meadow.

Ahh, I think I love it! (Keeping 100 for something really extra)

Let´s make second brew now.

Edit:

Second brew is very similar: Color is more vivid, so does tastes and aromas.

Flavors: Floral, Freshly Cut Grass, Hay, Spinach, Sweet, Umami

140 °F / 60 °C 1 min, 15 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 250 ML
