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.
