This Fukujyu is in the sencha category and is one of the better export sencha teas. The green leaf, which goes into this tea, only comes from the first and second flush. Additionally, the plucking cycle for this tea during the 1st and 2nd flush is every 4 days producing a tea that is mainly comprised of young tender shoots.  Once plucked the tea is steamed to denature it and stop any possibility of fermentation. After the steaming process, the tea is rolled and pan-fried. (You can see the effects of the pan firing - the leaves take on a sheen). Sencha tea generally yields clear, pale-green cups that carry many of the same vegetative grassy notes common to all Japanese teas. Historically this taste was not popular among westerners, but in the past 10 years or so western tastes have begun to embrace the taste and the commensurate health benefits of Japan's green teas.
