From Butiki Teas

Our Fukamushi Sencha Tenjo originates from the Kakegawa region of Shizuoka prefecture in Japan. Fukamushi is a deep steamed Sencha. The leaves are steamed for twice as long as a regular Sencha, as a result the leaves will be less uniform in appearance: however, the liquor is sweeter and brighter. The leaves of this rare, high grade of Fukamushi Sencha have been plucked around the 7th day of the first flush harvest. Tenjo is a full bodied sweet and juicy tea that is complex yet well balanced and brisk with a brilliant neon green liquor. Notes of sweet peas, steamed cauliflower, fresh grass, and macadamia nuts can be detected as well as light toasted notes. Oversteeping will result in a bitter brew. This tea is not eligible as a free sample.

Ingredients: Japanese Green Tea

Recommended Brew Time: 1 minute
Recommended Amount: 3 grams (1 1/2 teaspoons, 1 teaspoon for a lighter brew which will make 6 cups per half oz) of tea for 8oz of water
Recommended Temperature: 160 F degrees

Wow! (This is saying a lot as I am still not sold on green teas). Many thanks to Stacy for sending me some of this one. It smells very toasty and vegital dry. Steeped this tea is…juicy, an odd word, but it happened to be the first to come to mind. I’m also getting more toasted notes and spinach too.

As I continue to sip (trying not to gulp it down) I get a little hint of butter and maybe, some sweet pea too! I’m really getting the feeling of drinking my veggies and enjoying it too. I see this as a Christmas gift request…if I can hold off that long!

This is more for me than anything. I tried this tonight. Steeped about 45 seconds.

So not for me. (Self, do not get tempted by this tea in the future!)

Sadly it’s way too green and vegetal, verging on bitter grass. I see why the note says to not oversteep it!

This one’s lovely too! I need to say more, but I’m flipping burgers right now…it’s super smooth but has a toasty edge to it that sets it apart.

A Tasty japanese green that meets all my expectations. I love the flavor resulting from deep steamed leaves. I’m not too sold on every-day sencha, but sometimes my wallet is :) Definitely a case of “you get what you pay for.”

Because the leaves are so small, there is residue in the cup. It adds a textured mouth feel that I quite enjoy, although the bottom of the cup of these types of greens is a bit much to handle ;)

Thank you so much to Stacy from Butiki Teas for this sample! After actually drinking this tea, I would like to add a hundred more thank yous!

The first steep went for 1 minute at 160 and released a beautiful cloudy neon liquid with delicious sencha smell. The taste of this tea was amazingly smooth… not at all dry, and just as delicious as it smelled, much to my excitement! It has a really sweet flavor with a pea-like taste that’s slightly toasty. The end to this magnificent tea has the slightest bitter ending that I have ever tasted in a sencha, which makes me miss it more when it is gone. After drinking only the first steep, I have no doubt that this will be a purchase as soon as I have money.

The second went for 1:20 at the same temperature and I was please to find that the lovely cloudy neon color retained. This steep lost some of the flavor but I have no doubt that could be changed by adding a little more time. Between the flavor and the juiciness of the tea, I must admit that I was quite surprised and pleasantly so.

I also did a third steep for 2 minutes and it was just as amazing as the first!

This is probably the most expensive tea I’ve purchased from Stacy, hence my usual putting-off of the good stuff that I’ve recently learned you’re not supposed to do with greens. I bought this nearly a year ago and I’m only trying it for the first time today. Sigh.

I used 1.5 tsp dry leaf (I wish the “amount” box would recognize decimals or fractions) and probably a little less water at a little lower temperature and for maybe 4 seconds longer than the recommended parameters. The resulting liquor was pretty intense – I almost never add more hot water after steeping, but I did twice for this one. Even then it was somewhat bitter and astringent, but there were some buttery and spinach-y elements I liked. (Why do I always think green teas taste like buttered spinach?) I’ll try it with only a teaspoon of leaf next time.

ETA: Went for a second steep, 1m15s. It’s much gentler than the first steep, but still has a bitter bite along the sides of my tongue & plenty of umami (at least that’s what I think it is). The buttery & vegetal qualities are much less present, but I think I can make out some nuttiness, and perhaps a wisp of fruit.
