Deep Sea Sencha | Green Tea
The depths of deep-steamed sencha. An opaque liquor with a heavily textured mouthfeel that reveals the brothy brilliance of submerged vegetation. A signature Japanese tea, indeed.
Produced in the spring of 2023 by our friends at the Otsuka Green Tea Co. It’s a deep-steamed “fukamushi” sencha from the Yabukita cultivar growing in the Kakegawa region of Japan. This tea is made in the “Shizuoka” style that originated in Kakegawa and the longer steam time must be carefully balanced to produce a heavier cup that does not lose its color or fragrance. The particular outcome of each lot of tea will highly depend on the individual tea maker.
