One of several variations of sencha, “fukasmushi” refers to a longer steaming process that the leaves undergo to produce a Japanese green tea that is less vegetal in taste than regular sencha, but with a richer and smoother flavor. The extra steaming and rolling results in darker and finer leaves, liquor with more body, less astringency, and a faint sweetness.
