Sencha is the most common green tea in all of Japan, and there are several different styles. Fukamushi refers to a deeper steaming process this tea undergoes, and while that steaming may only happen for 30 seconds to a minute, the results have a powerful effect. Astringent flavors are suppressed while savory notes are enhanced, lending more mellowness. The tea is broken down more, causing the tea to suspend in the liquor, which allows more vitamins, fiber, and chlorophyll to be directly consumed. The flavors are rich and grassy, often described as spinach and seaweed.
