Saemidori Fukamushi Sencha

50g

Regular price $19.00

This tea is features a delightfully creamy texture and natural sweetness, which is characteristic of teas grown in the Yame region.

It is best brewed at a lower temperature to bring out its best qualities. When brewed with ice, the rich umami and sweetness that is reminiscent of gyokuro fills your mouth!
