Product Description

Sencha Fukujyu : Sencha is Japan’s most popular tea.

Sencha Fukujyu is a superior grade of Sencha. Fukujyu has a mild flavour and is rich in vitamin C.  All the other natural compounds present also remain in this extremely healthy tea which is grown in the shade prior to picking. This makes the tea low in tannin and therefore very smooth. In Japan the tea buds begin growing in April and this tea is picked early, whilst other teas are picked nearer maturity in July. Immediately after the tea is plucked it is steamed, rolled and then fired until it resemble green needles. Fukujyu has subtle sweetness with a fresh grassy aroma. Use one teaspoon per cup with freshly boiled water that has cooled to around 80 C. and infuse for three minutes.

Tea from Grey’s Teas

Our teas are loose leaf and we specialise in large leaf grades. All are made using traditional orthodox methods. Our teas are from named tea gardens or defined areas of origin.

Sourcing our tea

Sencha Fukujyu has been chosen for its distinctive, balanced flavour, aroma and appearance. Our tea is carefully sourced from long-established shippers. We can therefore guarantee the quality and origin of each tea and that it conforms to UK food and drink health regulations and our own demanding grading requirements.

The benefits of loose leaf tea

This loose leaf tea enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse. This tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known. A extra time is necessary when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup. You will be well rewarded for your patience!

Packing options

There are generally several packing options to choose from. These are 60 grams, 125 grams and 250 grams, the default being 125 grams in a packet. Our silver-coloured packets are a triple laminate of paper, foil and cellophane, specifically designed for tea. Alternatively, you can select a tin caddy for your tea. These square, silver coloured caddies have hinged lids. Again, 60 gram, 125 gram and 250 gram options are generally available as options which can be selected from the drop-down list. Packets and caddies have full-colour labels.

Have never drunk Japanese green tea before so I am no judge. I would find advice on brewing time helpful. Some teas have it on the packet and some don't. I am experimenting with how strong / weak to make it.


On 10-Feb-2015 the supplier responded:
We have now added the brewing time to this tea (three minutes). As with all green teas ensure that the fresh boiled water has cooled to around 80 degrees celcius before infusing. Try around 3 grams (one teaspoon) per 100 ml (cup) of water.

May take some getting used to as the tea has a strong seaweed like taste. It is not bad but is not what I had expected.
