Saemidori Fukamushi Sencha
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!

We prefer brewing this tea at a lower temperature (60°C) to bring out the subtle sweetness, but it is also tasty when brewed at a higher temperature.
