Singularities : A Japanese green tea is called Fukamushicha when it undergoes prolonged steaming during manufacture process. The leaves are therefore broken and the color of the liquor more intense.

The ancient volcanoes present in the region provide fertile soil, which with a dense mist and significant temperature variations contribute to the quality of the teas produced.

Our expert impressions : It had been a while since I wanted to integrate a Fukamushicha into the DAMMANN FRÈRES Japanese tea range. Here, the broken leaves are not a criterion of non-quality but the demonstration of a different manufacture process. It results a slightly more powerful liquor with a more intense color.
