    My remarks pertain to the 2020 harvest, which is a superb, refined fukamushi (and which I might guess is also a kabusecha). It is a beautiful light jade green, smooth and slightly creamy in the mouth, not sweet, with low astringency, and with good umami. The rich aroma and flavor suggests asparagus and artichoke, and at the end, a long-enduring seaweed and a bit of sourness. All extremely appealing. I've now had 800g of this tea over the past year, and my appreciation has not waned. Be aware that it is sensitive to being "cooked" if the water is too hot. I use a temperature of 155-158 for the first steep (you could go lower), and then go up by just 5-degree increments or so for the second & third steeps. I use 2 rounded teaspoons for a 12 oz. cup, but you can get a full-flavored tea with less than that. I steep for thirty seconds for the first and second steeps, and 20 seconds for the third. You can get an even more delicious, richer taste with a longer first steep, but keep in mind that what you add to the first steep you subtract from the second. My only problem with the first steep is that it is so delicious I can hardly help but gulp it down. This tea is a phenomenal value. Know any friends who deserve to taste a top-flight fukamushi sencha before they die? THIS is the tea to get them. OTOH, be aware of the profound risk of addiction. (Posted on 6/27/21)
