Detail
A slightly bitter, umami-rich Grand Cru with a complex aromatic profile whose fresh and grassy flavors are followed by marine notes.

This Shincha comes from the leaves of the Saemidori cultivar, a variety of tea plant that is much less common than Yabukita, which is still the main variety grown in Japan.
Fukamushi is characterised by the steaming process, which is two or three times longer than other Senchas steamed using the traditional method.


François-Xavier Delmas' choice:
“This Ichibancha has undergone a powerful steaming process. It comes from the Saemidori cultivar, grown in Kagoshima.”
