Rainforest Alliance certified, family-owned tea farm, Wakoen Co., Ltd., presents a premium, deep steamed fukamushicha green tea, Miyabi - meaning "elegance".

This tea is shaded for 7-10 days to increase its umami flavor and reduce bitterness, and is then deep-steamed (steamed for a longer than usual amount of time), which creates a very soft leaf, broken into fragments during rolling. This creates a deep, richly flavored and beautifully opaque green tea. 

There are four teas in the series: Miyabi, Takumi, Kaori, and You

Steeping Notes

  • Tea: 5 grams
  • Time: 30-60 sec
  • Water Temperature: 70C/160F degrees
  • Water Amount: 200 ml
  • Resteep up to 3 times. The second resteeping can be quick, water in and out as the leaves are already primed. Using hotter water may also extract stronger flavor in subsequent steeps.
  • Use cooler water for sweeter flavors, hotter water for more bitter flavors
  • Use more tea leaves, less water, or longer time for greater strength of flavor.
  • Cold steeping also recommend
  • See Steeping Techniques for more details on techniques
